A former Ripon High School teacher accused of having sex with a student has been charged. Samantha Fitzpatrick made her initial Fond du Lac Court appearance Wednesday on charges of child enticement, sexual assault of a student by school staff, exposing a child to harmful material and obstructing an officer. Bail was set at $1000 cash. Fitzpatrick is accused of sending sexually explicit text messages and a photo of herself to the 17 year old victim and having sex with the student on multiple occasions. Fitzpatrick was a teacher at Ripon High School last school year until she voluntarily resigned in May after the administration addressed concerns about her unreliable attendance. The charges carry a maximum penalty of more than 30 years in prison and $130,000 in fines. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 5.
