CRISFIELD, Md. – Samantha Marsh, a former nurse at the Crisfield High School, pleaded guilty to three counts of fourth degree sex offense on Tuesday.

Marsh is accused of performing sexual acts on four different students while she was employed at Crisfield High School.

Members of Marsh’s family cried as the States’ Attorney read aloud the accusations against her.

Marsh fessed up to having sexual relations with three of the minors identified only as Victim B, Victim C and Victim D. Victim A was not discussed on Tuesday.

As part of the plea deal, Marsh faces 15 years on the sex offender registry, a $3,000 fine as well as three years behind bars.

She told the judge she is aware of the punishments she faces for the admission of her guilt.

We caught up with some of the parents of the victims outside the court house on Tuesday. They told us they want Marsh to face the maximum penalty, and they don’t think three years behind bars is enough for her actions.

The judge decided he wanted to review the statements of the victims’ families before moving forward with sentencing. He also wanted to better review Marsh’s psychological evaluation.

Marsh’s sentencing date is scheduled to take place on August 20th at the Somerset County Circuit Court.

We reached out to the Somerset County Board of Education for a comment on this, but they have not gotten back to us yet.
