Fichter was a teacher at Central Florida Aerospace Academy in Lakeland. She was arrested after at least three former students came forward to claim they had a sexual relationship with her when they were 17 years old. One of the encounters resulted in a pregnancy, which Fichter later aborted. She was fired from the school following her arrest in April 2014. In April 2015, she pleaded guilty to all 37 counts. Prosecutors had asked the judge to sentence Fichter to 25 years in prison; the judge gave her 22 years instead.
