CLEVELAND — A Bedford High School teacher, who has been indicted in connection with alleged sexual relationships with two students, appeared in Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas on Monday.

Laura Dunker has been indicted on six counts of sexual battery and one count of tampering with evidence, according to Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas records.

Dunker was given a $5,000 cash surety bond and was ordered to give a DNA specimen.

As part of the conditions of her bond, Dunker was ordered to have no contact with the victim in the case.

On Dec 4, the investigation led to the determination that alleged sexual activity between Dunker and two male students occurred, the report states.

Court records state that in one of the incidents, Dunker allegedly picked up a student before school, went to a park and then engaged in sexual activity with the student.

She's also accused of engaging in sexual conduct with a student at her home.

According to the indictment, Dunker was sexually involved with students from November 2018 to October 2019.

Dunker is scheduled to appear in court on Jan.16 at 9:00 a.m.
