PE Teacher and Cheerleading Coach Charged With Sexual Assault
A high school PE teacher and cheerleading coach in Pennsylvania has been officially charged with sexual assault after allegations came to light that she had sex with a male student 17 years of age in a relationship that lasted almost an entire year.
The two apparently used a number of extremely covert meeting places including the likes of random apartments and the parking lots of nursing homes in order to carry out their relationship and manage to avoid detection for such a long time, reports the International Business Times.
The only reason that the police found out about the relationship at all was due to an anonymous email tip that the department received, and were able to go on with the investigation from there, obtaining phone records and the like that showed that the two almost constantly exchanged text messages and phone calls with one another.
The coach, Nicole Kurowski 27, was brought in and charged with institutional sexual assault and a number of other charges in the same vein.
“She was an employee for us for two years as a physical education teacher and cheerleading coach,” district superintendent Ed Albert told CBS Philadelphia.
“I got the tip and I immediately got on the phone with the school board president (Scott W. Klopp) and our solicitor (Brian Boland),” Albert said. “I take this matter very seriously.”
While it is not known of Kurowski has yet hired a lawyer, she did pay the twenty five thousand dollar bail for her release from jail and is awaiting trial.
Kurowski was charged with institutional sexual assault and related charges.
Bernville is in Berks County, Pa., about an hour and 30 minutes northwest of Philadelphia.
