An Artesia middle school teacher is accused of sexually assaulting several foster children.
Police arrested 42-year-old Jodi Kirkpatrick on Friday. Kirkpatrick is charged with five counts of criminal sexual penetration and five counts of kidnapping.
Police said Kirkpatrick and her ex-husband, Richard Glascoe, sexually assaulted several foster children in their care while living in Clovis from 2003 to 2006.
Glascoe was convicted in 2007, but new evidence found last week prompted a warrent for Kirkpatrick.
