Not a lot of details about this story.
Just another example of seemingly intelligent young women who are throwing their careers away for sex with underage males. Don’t think this has reached epidemic proportions? Check out the list of Female Teacher Sex Scandals at our sister site, The DumbAss Daily. There’s at least one case like this a week these days, and sometimes close to ONE A DAY. Is no one telling them this is against school policy at the least, and possibly a felony at the worst? Hey, it’s not like we don’t try to get the word out there.
In this case we have Erin Queen, 27, a girls basketball coach and teacher at Charles Page High School in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. She was arrested on Saturday morning, after she allegedly spent the night at a Candlewood Suites hotel room (they do have nice rooms) with an underage boy. According to some reports, the boy told his parents he was staying at a friend’s house, the parents called to check on him and when they found out he wasn’t there, they called police who eventually caught up with the couple at the hotel at 4:30 am.
Yes, 17 is above the age of consent in most states, but an Oklahoma statute defines rape “where the victim is at least 16 years of age and is less than 18 years of age and is a student…and engages in sexual intercourse with a person who is 18 years of age or older and is an employee of the same school system.” She will be charged with felony first degree rape.
Some reports are saying Queen is married, but we can’t confirm that. If she was, and these charges turn out to be true, she probably won’t be part of a couple very long.

Earlier this week, a winning coach on a 6th grade basketball team had part of his ear bitten off by the losing coach following a game. Now we have the father of a 5th to 8th grader at St. Stanislaus School in Michigan City, Indiana punching and beating his daughter’s coach until he was unconscious.
The father, Shelly S. Miller, 37, walked into practice about 3 pm to pick up his child, he saw the girl running laps. The coach sent two girls running after they got into an argument at practice. Not exactly sure what Mr. Miller objected to about that, but his first move was to approach assistant coach Jeffrey Yackus and punch him. Once Yackus was on the ground, Miller then climbed on top of him and continued punching him until he knocked him out. Fortunately, the head coach was nearby, and pulled Miller off Yackus.
Yackus was taken to the hospital, where he was treated for a concussion, while Miller was arrested and charged with battery.
Nothing new about coaches playing practical jokes on players. And, anymore, it seems like coaches and faculty at the high school level are getting chummier all the time. But that still doesn’t excuse girls basketball coach/principal Mike Loftin at West Harrison High School who pulled the warm-up pants off of one of his players.
Usually the players have their game shorts underneath. But not this time, which is unfortunate for both Mr. Loftin and the player, Callie Merriman, 15. According to reports, Merriman left her shorts at home that day, went home to get them, but had not put them on as she and other players waited to board a bus for an away game. Once depantsed, she slumped to the floor to cover herself.
The school will not say how Loftin has been disciplined, but local police are investigating.
