The two Clark County School District teachers accused of having sex with a student during the 2011-12 academic year at Brown Junior High School are free after posting bail early Tuesday.

Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul said Bambi M. Dewey, 32, and John E. Stalmach, 31, posted bail about 3 a.m. Dewey was released on $20,000 bond and Stalmach was released on $60,000 bond.

The two were taken into custody Monday and booked into Henderson Detention Center on counts of solicitation of a minor to engage in acts constituting crime against nature. Stalmach also was arrested on a count of sexual conduct between certain employees of school or volunteers at school and a pupil.

The teachers are accused of engaging in sex with the teen at a home the couple shared in Henderson. Separately, Stalmach also is accused of having sex with the girl without Dewey's presence.

The acts are alleged to have occurred between November 2011 and January 2012, Paul said.

Dewey is a teacher at Brown Junior High School in Henderson. Stalmach is a teacher at Dailey Elementary School in Las Vegas. Stalmach taught at Basic High School at one time and at Brown Junior High School, Paul said.

The alleged victim is now 16 and attends Basic High School. She attended Brown when both Dewey and Stalmach taught there.

The teachers have been placed on leave without pay, School District spokeswoman Amanda Fulkerson said. If the teachers miss five days of school or more, or are found guilty of their charges, district officials will begin the procedure to remove them from the district, Fulkerson said.

Fulkerson urged parents to remain alert and talk to their children so that similar incidents may be brought to the district's attention and investigated.
