PORT BARRE, La. (KLFY) – A basketball coach at Port Barre High School is accused of having sexual relations with three students.
Police Chief Deon Boudreaux said Nicole Aymond, 45, was arrested today on three counts of prohibited sexual conduct.
Authorities launched an investigation last week after receiving a call from a concerned parent.
Boudreaux said investigators found lewd and nude images of Aymond that she allegedly texted to a student’s cell phone.
Aymond admitted to having sexual intercourse with two male students and sexual conduct with a third student, according to Boudreaux.
All of the three students involved are between 17 and 18 years old.
17 is the age of sexual consent, according to Louisiana law.
However, Boudreaux explained another state law another state law prohibits, “sexual relationships between educators and students if the student is under the age of 21 years old and a student at the facility the educator is employed (at).”
No bond has been sent as of yet.
St. Landry Parish School System Superintendent Patrick D. Jenkins issued the following statement about Aymond’s allegations:
