It was not the best season for the boy’s basketball team at Shelbyville High School, just south of Indianapolis. The squad finished 1-20 on the season, ranked near the bottom of all the schools in the state. It’s doubtful anyone on the team is going to get a college scholarship. But hey, one piece of good news: a member of the team allegedly got oral sex from the hot assistant cheerleading coach in a parked car at the local grocery store in town.
According to police, coach Megan Crafton, 22, was the subject of a whisper campaign at the high school back in February and when the whispering got loud enough for the administration to hear, they called the local police who did a lengthy investigation (this takes four months?). In the end, Crafton admitted to an inappropriate relationship with a member of the boys basketball team. The victim, 17, told officers that she performed oral sex on him in a car of the parking lot of Western Supermarket at the height of the basketball season. (Trying to console him for all those losses, maybe?)
Crafton now faces a charge of child seduction, a class D felony that carries a sentence of up to three years in prison. On the plus side, Megan does show a nice amount of cleavage in her mugshot, something you don’t see a lot of the ladies put effort into these days.

You all remember Lauren Redfern from Colorado, don’t you? She was the female gym teacher who was caught having sex in her office bathroom with an 18-year-old male student by the school’s athletic director back in February. Not much you can really do at that point but quit your job at Basalt High School and wait to go to jail.
Unless, of course, you’re Ms. Redfern. Then, while awaiting sentencing for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, you head to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in Utah with a bunch of friends to blow off a little steam. And, by blowing off a little steam we mean doing a little drinking in the park (probably not the first time that’s happened) partaking in some hallucinogenic mushrooms (also probably not the first time) and playing some loud music. All of that probably would have just gotten them some dirty looks from fellow campers. But when she and the other members of the camping group allegedly started shooting off guns–like a 12-gauge shotgun–the park service cops pretty much have to step in and throw some cold water on the party.
Unfortunately for Redfern, she’s now accused of violating bond conditions by drinking alcohol and leaving Colorado without written condition from a court. The former teacher faces four to 16 years in prison if convicted and is scheduled to be sentenced June 26 on the contributing to the delinquency of a minor charge.

Is this the next phase in the High School Coach Sex Scandal trend of the last 10 years? We report more and more of them, but nothing seems to want the schools to get more involved in preventing these incidents. So, parents are going to start suing schools, especially when there’s evidence they knew–or should have known–about an inappropriate relationship. The latest case: In Indiana, the family of a former student is suing LaPorte Community School Corp. claiming it failed to properly supervise its employees and also failed to provide a safe environment for their then-15-year-old daughter.
The case involves former junior varsity volleyball coach Robert Ashcraft (currently serving 21 years in prison) who reportedly had sex with an underage girl about 25 times between September 2007 and summer 2009. The lawsuit names as defendants the LaPorte Community School Corp., Athletic Director Edward Gilliland and head volleyball coach MaryBeth Lebo claiming they had reason to believe the relationship was taking place, but failed to report it to either law enforcement or child protective services between August 2007 and October 2008. How much is sex between a teen and a coach worth? About $18.7 million accord to the girl’s parents. Now word on how they arrived at that amount.
