IRVINE, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky high school soccer coach is accused of having sex with an underage student and sending multiple students nude photographs.
WKYT-TV reports 28-year-old Andrew Hatton was arrested Tuesday on charges of third-degree rape, distribution of obscene matter to minors and possession of matter portraying sexual performance of a minor.
His arrest citation says a member of the girls' soccer team at Estill County High School told police she had sex with Hatton up to five times. Another player reported the coach had added her on Snapchat and sent nude pictures of himself, requesting nude pictures of her in return.
The school's website listed Hatton as the boys' soccer coach, but state police say he used to coach the girls. He's been placed on leave. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
