Just as 2008 winds down we start getting a slew of new High School Coach Sex Scandal stories. Okay, Hope Jacoby is tecnically not a coach–she’s an athletic trainer–but she is still an adult with oversight responsibility over underage athletes and someone who allegedly should know better. At she is good looking and blond. What else do we need for a classic bad jock story?
At right, Hope Jacoby’s mug shot picture. Anyone found her MySpace or Facebook page yet? Here’s the full story from the LA Times:
An athletic trainer at Tustin High School has been arrested on suspicion of engaging in unlawful sex acts with a student at the school, an Orange County sheriff’s spokesman said Wednesday. Hope Jacoby, 23, who has worked with athletes at the school for the last year, was arrested last week on suspicion of oral copulation of a minor and unlawful sex with a minor, said Sheriff’s Department spokesman Jim Amormino.
Sheriff’s deputies were informed of the unlawful acts by someone who saw a text message photograph, Amormino said. The boy was between 14 and 17 years old. Jacoby, who lives in San Juan Capistrano, was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail, Amormino said. Investigators believe there may have been other victims, he said.
Think any other “victims” will want to come forward?
