SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) -- Two South Carolina teachers who worked with pre-school children have been arrested and accused of corrupting some teens at parties that included alcohol, drugs and sex.

Multiple media outlets reported that 42-year-old Sarah Jane Lindsay and 44-year-old Audrey Beidleman Grabarkiewicz of Boiling Springs were arrested Monday by Spartanburg County sheriff's deputies.

Lindsay was a 4-year-old kindergarten teacher at Boiling Springs Elementary and is charged with nine counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and criminal sexual conduct with a minor between 11 and 14 years old. Lindsey resigned Monday.

Grabarkiewicz was a preschool teacher at Lake Bowen Baptist Church and is charged with 10 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The pastor says she was fired Monday.

It was unclear if the women had attorneys.
