Kathryn Marie Houghtaling

A 26-year-old former suburban Detroit teacher has been charged with six counts of criminal sexual conduct involving two teenage boys, ages 16 and 17.

Kathryn Houghtaling was arraigned Friday in Rochester Hills District Court. She has been fired from her job at Rochester High School, north of Detroit.

Authorities say the incidents took place at a home and in a vehicle in November and December.

Houghtaling was a special education teacher for one of the students. Defense attorney Zachary Glaza said in court Friday that the student was assigned to Houghtaling's classroom due to a reading deficiency.

Houghtaling of Sterling Heights was jailed on a $200,000 bond. She returns to court Jan. 24 for a probable cause conference and Jan. 30 for a preliminary examination.
