Kourtnie A. Sanchez, an ex-elementary school teacher from Kansas, is accused of multiple sex crimes authorities say occurred with victims between the ages of 15 to 17.

Sanchez, a 25-year-old mother-of-three, faces charges of electronic solicitation, unlawful sexual relations, solicitation of unlawful sexual relations and promoting obscenity to a minor, in connection with the alleged crimes, which took place over a five-month stretch last year, Greenwood County Sheriff's Office Detective Josh Nelson said.

Sanchez spent part of 2014 working as a student teacher at Marshall Elementary School in Eureka for the fall semester. Sanchez, who was affiliated with the school via a college program, also worked at the junior high level, coaching volleyball and basketball under Rule 10, meaning she wasn't a certified teacher who could independently coach.

The school district parted ways with Sanchez in December when accusations were made, KAKE reported.

Sanchez, who was released from custody on a $50,000 bond, is slated to appear in court for a preliminary hearing May 8.
