A Polk County, Fla., teacher is behind bars after she was accused of having sex with a 17-year-old boy in her pickup truck, according to local police.
Jennifer Fichter, 29, is an English teacher at Central Florida Aerospace Academy. The alleged victim is one of her students, an arrest report said.
A Lakeland, Fla., police statement confirmed that "according to the victim's [mom], admitted to the sexual encounters and professed her love for him."
"The victim's mother discovered this relationship after reviewing text messages from her son and she asked that Fichter respond to her residence to talk."
That conversation was made in a phone call Monday that was recorded by police. Fichter told the alleged victim's mother she had sex 20-30 times with him.
The teacher also said she had an abortion after getting pregnant with his child.
Fichter told the alleged victim's mother she wanted a relationship with her son and doesn't regret anything; she was arrested at her apartment 90 minutes later.
