So it seems that high school softball coach, Kendall Lucas was doing a tad more than teaching a bunch of girls how to hit a ball, that’s for sure.
Lucas, a 25-year-old softball coach at Taylor High School in Austin has been busted having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old student — a relationship that took place over two months. Police launched an investigation after the student of course told two friends, and those two friends turned right around and told the school officials, who then contacted police. And Lucas had no choice but to turn herself in and confess.
Between the two months of the relationship, Lucas and the student had ten sexual encounters, and police are not sure if Lucas had sexual encounters with any other student at the school.
“Like you, we are all obviously shocked and dismayed by this allegation and will be working to support all of our students in coping with this distributing news,” school principal Andrew Maddox said in a letter sent to parents. Maddox also said he was “shocked and dismayed” at the “disturbing” claims.
The school revealed that Lucas has been placed on administrative leave while this claim is investigated.
And as for Lucas? Well, Lucas has been charged with an improper relationship between an educator and a student and is facing up to 20 years behind bars. But in reality, she will get probation and will be working again in another state. Most likely in Florida.
