It’s always big news when the Internet gets a 25-year-old female basketball coach having alleged sex with a 17-year-old student. Lauren Redfern is this week’s winner of 15 minutes of fame. She’s a PE teacher at Basalt High School in Colorado and now up on felony sexual assault charges. It’s not like Lauren is a big loss to the Basalt girls’ basketball team. She guided them to a 1-17 record this year before being arrested. 

Guess how this case blew up? Sex at school! BOOM!

Via the Aspen Times:

The athletic director of the school allegedly interrupted the encounter when he knocked on the bathroom door, according to an affidavit filed in support of an arrest warrant. Teacher Lauren Redfern came out of the bathroom and exited the office with the athletic director while the student stayed behind, the affidavit said.

“School administrators confronted the student who told them that he had sex with the teacher in the bathroom,” the affidavit continued. The document, filed in Eagle County District Court, didn’t make it clear if the student was questioned by school administrators on Feb. 9 or Feb. 10. Roaring Fork School District Superintendent Judy Haptonstall said she believed the incident occurred late in the day on Feb. 9 and that district administrators began investigating the morning of Feb. 10.

Oh, it gets even better. This one is straight out of your 1994 high school fantasies. READ THIS!

Redfern told a deputy the first time they were together was at the student’s house to watch a movie, that they began kissing and fondling each other with their clothes on and that nothing more happened, the affidavit said.

Two weeks later, Redfern told investigators, the student called to ask Redfern for help editing a school paper, he came to her house and worked on the paper, and then they engaged in sexual intercourse, the affidavit said.

“Redfern said this was just prior to (the student) turning 18 years old,” the affidavit said.

18 is the magic number in Colorado because a student can have sex with a teacher after turning to legal age. Even sex at 17 is legal, but not with a teacher. Redfern would have been cool if she’d waited to get boned when slugger had that magical birthday. Instead, she now faces that felony and 4 to 16 years in jail.
