Tiffany Eichler, 36, a Canton, Ohio high school teacher, has been indicted on multiple felony counts for allegedly engaging in sexual activity with students.
Eichler is accused of having sex with three different students who attended McKinley High School in Canton while she was employed as a physical education teacher.
She was charged with three counts of sexual battery and if convicted she could face up to 15 years in prison.
Canton police interviewed Eichler on March 8 after they were notified by the director of school security. Eichler told police she was being blackmailed for money by students after having had sex with them, according to a police report.
During the interview, Eichler told authorities she picked a student up near his house and the two engaged in sexual activity in her car. According to the report, Eichler went to the student’s house later the same day and the two engaged in sexual activity in the basement.
