If Sean Salisbury has taught us anything, it’s that (allegedly) taking cell phone photos of your junk and sending them around is a terrible idea. But at least Salisbury was (allegedly) showing them to adult co-workers. Sending them to teenage cheerleaders who attend the school you coach at? A much, much worse idea.
Further demonstrating that technology is not always a good thing, 28-year-old high school football coach and middle school teacher Tyson Norsworthy has been arrested and charged with using text messaging and the aforementioned photos to arrange sex with at least one teenage girl at his school. At the very least, Norsworthy has established a pattern of sending inappropriate text messages to a number of girls while they’re still in middle school (though it appears he waits until they’re in high school to try and have sex with them. How considerate.)
Wide receiver Anthony Mix had been out of the NFL for a year, until he signed with the Buccaneers in January. So he did what any one of us would do: He allegedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl.
The 26-year-old Mix has been indicted in Alabama after reenacting a cross between “Romeo & Juliet”, “Rapunzel”, and “Barely Legal Teens 22″. He allegedly came to the girls house, waiting outside while she snuck out, and had sex in his car parked outside. When it happened a second time, the girl’s mother called police. You can’t be doing that.
A former women’s basketball star at a Catholic university then becomes a high school softball coach? I’ll have to double check to make sure I got all of my stereotypes correct, but that sounds to me like a recipe for lesbian sex with an underage player.
Raenna Jewell, who was a 1000-point scorer at Gonzaga, was arrested last week on charges she had sex with a 16-year old player on the freshman softball team. As seems to be par for the course these days, she allegedly texted the girl inappropriate images. Rest assured, your humble blogger did his due diligence in finding evidence of said inappropriate pictures. That is, until I saw what Ms. Jewell looked like.
Cycling has never really been my thing, but it’s hard to ignore a story out of Scranton, Pennsylvania about a guy who rode his bike from Maryland to Scranton for the sole purpose of meeting and having sex with a 15-year-old girl. He’s a regular Lance Armstrong, this guy. Just much, much creepier.
(I’m just assuming the guy’s bike looked like this)
26-year-old William Wagner’s “Tour de Statutory Assault” began in his hometown of Havre de Grace, Maryland, and continued 180 miles to a baseball field in Scranton. You might be shocked to learn that all of this was set up on MySpace. Wagner of course contends he thought the girl was 18.
A couple of weeks back, Brooks brought us the latest disgusting situation hockey agent/coach David Frost has found himself in. To recap: Frost allegedly directed some of his players (who were teenagers) to participate in group sex with the other players and their girlfriends (who were also underage), all while Frost watched and sometimes participated himself. Not surprisingly, this has led to Frost getting arrested and put on trial.
(Pretty easy to see how you could get under his spell, right?)
As the trial came to a close yesterday, the Canadian government (which they call “the Crown” when it comes to court proceedings — how cute) says that Frost had such a psychological hold over his players that they had to ask his permission before having sex with their girlfriends. The players, for what it’s worth, have refused to testify against their “mentor.” And while all of this is fascinating stuff, the key argument of Frost’s defense is a real doozy. Even that crazy lawyer Annie Potts plays on Law & Order wouldn’t try to pull this one off.
