Court dismisses case against former coach

Charges against a 26-year-old former high school girls' soccer coach for sexually assaulting a 16-year-old team member were dismissed Tuesday, court records report. She was charged in February for sexual assault of a student by school staff. The complaint said the two became friends during last year's soccer season, and they became physically involved in January.

The complaint said the coach spent the night at the student's house, and they groped and touched each other outside their clothing. The coach's contract with the school ended after the 2008-2009 season, and she was just a volunteer coach after that because she helped with open gym nights. The case was dismissed because she was no longer a school district employee at the time.
