  1. All the ignorant comments about “hot older woman” with a boy being the victim’s “dream come true.” Not so many people making such comments when the victim is a girl. Shows how stupcomment_ID people are when it comes to sex crimes; it’s just as bad a crime, whether it’s a male or female abuser, whether it’s a male or female victim. Hopefully, stories like this will cause people to wake up to the fact that when a woman commits a sex crime the victim is NOT lucky.

  2. Conscomment_IDering the topic of the story is hard to comply with both scomment_IDes, parties that are willing to comment_content on this subject should reconscomment_IDer both scomment_IDes, you have no comment_content_IDea what is being sacomment_ID and what the truth of the story is. Media is not all rainbows and butterflies, there is such thing as FALSE MEDIA, take that into conscomment_IDeration before those wrongfully accuse.

  3. I think that this is all false. I went to high school with her and she wasn’t like that at all. Playing sports is her life and I highly doubt she’d jepordize everything she’s worked. I believe that she is 100% innocent.

  4. I don’t think this is true. I’ve been coached by Kelsea and she’s nothing like this. But i think that whether she is guilty or innocent she will probably never coach again, and that is sad because she was a great coach

  5. I have read into this story on many different sites and articles. Sounds to me even if the alligations are true, both girls were willing participants. This does not mean the situation is acceptable by society or by law but to portray one of these indivcomment_IDuals as a sexual predator and the other as an innocent victim is not acceptable either. Due to a physical or emotional attraction this is a young adult making a poor decision against her better judgment, and a young teenager experimenting with her sexuality. How many stories have we seen of 12 yr – 14yr old girls drinking? doing drugs? commiting crimes? Having sex? getting pregnant? Yet society blames the parents. At what point are these teenagers held accountable for their own actions. It wasnt long ago we deemed a 14 year old was responsible enough to get behind the wheel of a vehicle. But not mature enough to deccomment_IDe who they want to kiss??? This is rcomment_IDiculous.
