Multiple media outlets reported that 42-year-old Lindsay and 44-year-old Grabarkiewicz of Boiling Springs, S.C. were arrested Monday by Spartanburg County sheriff's deputies.

The alleged "sex parties" took place in July and August of this year, at the suspects' homes, police told CBS affiliate WSPA.

Grabarkiewicz was a preschool teacher at Lake Bowen Baptist Church. She was charged with 10 counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The church's pastor said she was fired on Monday.

Lindsay, who worked as a kindergarten teacher at Boiling Springs Elementary, 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.

Lindsay resigned from her job Monday.

Grabarkiewicz was released from the Spartanburg County Detention Center Wednesday morning after posting a $25,000 bond and agreeing to home detention, according to the Spartanburg Herald-Journal.

She was also served with divorce papers by her husband of 17 years, Eddie Grabarkiewicz, who has asked for "complete care, control and custody" of the couple's three children, ages 12, 9 and 7, and child support, his lawyer told the paper.

Lindsay remains in jail on a $50,000 bond.
