La Pine cheerleading coach accused of sex with boy

LA PINE, Ore. (AP) The La Pine High School cheerleading coach accused of having sex with a 17-year-old male student was arrested on charges of sex abuse and sexual misconduct.

Deschutes County sheriff's Lt. Deron McMaster says a school staff member reported rumors in March about Nicole Mickelson.

KTVZ in Bend reports she partied with four students, including the 17-year-old. She was cited for providing liquor to a minor.

The 30-year-old La Pine woman was arrested April 18 on the sex charges and is due to appear in court Thursday.

The Bend-La Pine School District says she resigned after the investigation began.
