'A woman faces 23 charges in McMinn County, Tennessee for having sexual encounters with male students at McMinn Central High School, according to McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy.

Melissa Blair, 38, is charged with solicitation of a person under the age of 18, 18 counts of statutory rape, aggravated statutory rape, four counts of patronizing prostitution, and forfeiture of personal property. Blair posted her $100,000 bond Tuesday night.

According to a press release, Blair was communicating with the victims "on social media, arranging meetings with them, and trading items for sexual encounters with them."

There are nine male victims with incidents occurring from spring 2020 to late 2021, Guy said. Seven of the victims are minors; two were victimized as minors but are now adults, according to a press release.

The sheriff's office said deputies suspect there may be more victims who were minors at the time but are now adults.'
