    Delaware County Times: Ex-coach at Delaware County Christian School busted for sex with student (With Video) (Aug 22 2013)

    A 27-year-old former softball coach [Lana Trotter] for Delaware County Christian School has been charged with felony sexual assault for allegedly having a two-year sexual relationship with one of her players ... An arrest warrant was issued for Trotter on Wednesday after the alleged victim told authorities she and Trotter had been involved in a sexual relationship that began in 2011, when she was 16 years old, court documents indicate.

    ...

    The parents of the alleged victim contacted police in July after discovering a cellphone, hidden in their daughter’s bedroom, that contained inappropriate text messages between Trotter and the girl, according to the affidavit of probable cause written by Newtown Detective John Newell.

    ...

    When the teenage girl lost her cellphone privileges, Trotter, unbeknownst to the parents, allegedly purchased an iPhone for the 16-year-old so they could continue to talk and text after school hours.
    The relationship between the coach and the softball player became more serious that fall, authorities allege. The two saw each other often, and at one point, Trotter professed her love for the softball player, the affidavit states.

    The relationship between the coach and the high school student became sexual in January 2012, authorities allege. Late one Friday night, Trotter was with the alleged victim at her home in Newtown Square. As they sat on the couch, Trotter allegedly told the teenager she loved her and the two began to “make out,” the affidavit states. The girl allegedly told police she was confused by Trotter’s actions and asked her to leave.
