Police in Louisiana have arrested and charged a married female high school basketball coach with having sex with multiple boys and sexting them on multiple occasions.
After being confronted with the nude photos she sent the boys, Nicole Aymond, 45, of Port Barre, Louisiana, admitted to police that she had sex with two students and sexual contact with a third. All three Port Barre High School students are between the ages of 17 and 18.
Officials became involved when the mother of one of the victims alerted police about the naked photos sent to her son by the teacher.
While she faces three counts of prohibited sexual misconduct as an educator to a student, Aymond won’t face child rape charges because the age of consent in Louisiana is 17.
“I just think it’s horrible they ought to let her go and never let her go back to where there are kids,” one Port Barre resident told KLFY Channel 10.
“It upset us very much,” the resident added. “We know of her and we know who she’s married to and it just hurts us to think she could even do something like that.”
The suspect’s husband also works for the school district.
Port Barre Police Chief, Deon Boudreaux, said his department has had allegations of untoward behavior between a teacher and students before, but this is the first time concrete evidence has turned up in such a case.
Chief Boudreaux added, “But there’s another law that prohibits school teachers, educators from getting into a sexual relationship with a student at a school their [sic] employed too. Under the age of 21.”
The St. Landry Parish School Board said they cannot comment until the investigation is complete.
Aymond’s bail was set at $7,500.
