A Berkeley County teacher has been accused of having sex with three students.

Twenty-nine-year-old Ellen Lindsay Niemiec of Summerville was charged Thursday with three counts of sexual battery of a student. Two of the charges are felonies, since the alleged victims were 17 years old. The third student was 18.

Investigators said the sex occurred at a house in Berkeley County last month.

The Berkeley County School District said Niemiec is no longer employed. She had worked at Cross High School.

Attorney David Aylor said his client is married and has three young children. He said the charges are very difficult for Niemiec and her family.
