Kettering substitute teacher indicted on charges of sex with students


For the second time in a week, an indictment alleging sexual misconduct with teenage minor students has been issued against an educator, this time with charges against a Kettering substitute teacher.

Madeline Marx, 23, of Brookville, was indicted Thursday by a Montgomery County grand jury on two counts of sexual battery, court records show.

The indictment alleges one of the acts occurred between May 1 and Sept. 1 of this year. The second charge states the other act occurred later, between Sept. 1 and Sept. 30, according to the indictment.

Marx, who was teaching at Kettering Fairmont High School when the alleged crimes occurred, appeared in Kettering Municipal Court on Monday on the sexual battery charges. She pleaded not guilty through her attorney, Keith Fricker.

Fricker said Friday he had not seen a copy of the indictment and declined to comment.

Marx has been ordered to appear in court Nov. 30, two days after a court date for a former Miamisburg Middle School teacher indicted on six counts for alleged acts involving a teenage student, court records show.

Jessica Langford, 32, of Centerville was indicted Tuesday on three counts of sexual battery and three counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, court records show. Langford resigned from the Miamisburg district in late May, the same week allegations were made that she was sexually involved with a student, according to school district records.

Prosecutors have said Langford’s case involves a 14-year-old male. Several attempts by this news organization to reach Langford have been unsuccessful.

The indictment against Marx does not state any ages or genders of the students in that case. However, municipal court records indicate the allegations involve two males, 16 and 17 years old.

The indictment against Marx - in both criminal counts - states “the offender was a teacher, administrator, coach or other person in authority employed or serving in a school….and the other person is enrolled in or attends that school.”

A 17-year-old student told police he was given oral sex by a teacher July 19 in the parking lot of Big Lots on Wilmington Pike, according to the complaint, affidavit and statement of facts filed in Kettering Municipal Court.

A 16-year-old boy told police he had intercourse with a substitute teacher Sept. 21 in the parking lot of an apartment complex on Smithville Road, municipal court documents show.

Marx was removed from Fairmont’s building Nov. 8 by police.
