Florida: A former Florida teacher was sentenced to 22 years in prison Thursday for having sex dozens of times with three of her students — with one of her trysts leading to her getting an abortion. “I wish I could go back and remove what I have done,” a tearful Jennifer Fichter, 30, said in court Thursday, according to WFTS. “I hate what I have done. I wish I could go back and think about (the victims) before me.” But the parents of the victims remained unforgiving.
“It hurts,” one mother told the court. “I saw myself losing my son before my very eyes and there was nothing I could do to reach him.” Fichter had forced her victims, who were all 17 at the time, to lie to their parents about the illegal encounters. She also used alises when texting the boys to try covering up her sex crimes.
