John Stalmach And Bambi Dewey, Las Vegas Teachers, Arrested For Allegedly Having Sex With Student

Posted: Updated:

Two Las Vegas teachers have been arrested over allegations they had a three-way with a 16-year-old female student.

John Stalmach, 31, and Bambi Dewey, 32, a couple that was previously living together but has since broken up, were both charged with solicitation of a minor for sex. Stalmach was also charged with sexual conduct between a teacher and a student, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Dewey teaches at Brown Junior High School in nearby Henderson, Nev., where Stalmach was previously employed as a physical education teacher and where the student was reportedly a cheerleader.

The teenager allegedly told police she knew the pair through school activities and had spent time at their home, the Review-Journal reports. She also is said to have told police that the group did shots of whiskey one night last December and that they eventually made their way up to the bedroom.

The allegations came to light after both Dewey's ex-husband, Steven Baca, and her sister, Robin Dewey, told police they believed that there was an inappropriate relationship going on between the couple and a teenager, the paper reports.

According to Action News, ABC 13, the alleged relationship between the teachers and the student went on between November 2011 and January 2012.

One of Bambi Dewey's former students said he was surprised by the allegations, adding that "She was a really nice teacher," KSNV reports. Another student told the news outlet that the teacher often wore low-cut tops and short skirts.

The school district responded to the incident with the following statement, KTNV reports:

"These teachers are off payroll and this serves as a reminder to parents to talk to their kids about any abnormal interactions with adults."

This case comes on the heels of several other incidents where teachers have allegedly engaged in inappropriate behaviors with students.

In August, Brittni Colleps, a Texas high school teacher, was found guilty of sex with multiple students. She was sentenced to five years in prison.

In July, a Tennessee teacher pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual acts with 10 of her students in the classroom and at her home.
