We don’t know what’s wrong with people. Megan Crafton is too pretty to be engaging these young boys! Read on to find out what happened…
A high school cheerleading coach pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from an alleged sexual encounter with an Indiana high school basketball player.
Megan Crafton, 22, a part-time assistant cheerleading coach in Shelbyville, allegedly admitted to police that she performed oral sex on the 17-year-old boy in her car in a supermarket parking lot in January.
But her lawyer claimed after her court appearance Thursday that Crafton didn’t break the law, WISH reported. She’s charged with child seduction, a felony, but in Indiana the age of consent is 16.
Though the age of consent for sexual activity in Indiana is 16, adults are legally prohibited from having sex with anyone under the age of 18 if they hold authority over them as part of their job.
Crafton’s lawyer asserted that the law doesn’t apply in this case, because as a part-time member of the cheerleading staff, Crafton doesn’t have authority over the teenaged boy.
Shelbyville High School officials tipped off police about rumors circulating in the halls that Crafton was involved with a student, Fox News said.
Police questioned Crafton about the hanky-panky in February, but only charged her this month. She turned herself in on June 15.
The charges carry a potential jail term of three years.
Her trial is scheduled for September 24. Her boyfriend has yet to comment.
