    This isn't the type of employment stimulus many would have in mind.

    A math teacher at a Fox Lake High School found herself in the clink for a while on Tuesday, accused of recruiting two teenage girls for odd jobs around her home and rewarding them with marijuana, booze and Zoloft since January.

    Kym Krocza, 41, bonded out of jail and faces up to six years in prison on felony charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

    The investigation began when a concerned parent reported to the Lake County Sheriff's office that her child had been to Kym Krocza's home recently, and the child was supplied with alcohol and marijuana by Krocza, according to a release from Lake County Sheriff Mark Curran's office.

    Investigators are trying to determine if other teens who went to Krocza’s home also might have been supplied with illegal substances, Curran said.
