Ex-Coach’s Wife: Teen Was ‘Willing Participant’ in Consensual Sex

Article here. Excerpt:

'A former high school football coach’s wife, who pleaded guilty to charges of having sex with a teenage student, insists that the sexual encounters with the boy were consensual and wants the teen’s new lawsuit tossed on that basis.

Kelsey McCarter, 29, of Knoxville, Tennessee, plead guilty last year to six counts of statutory rape of a sophomore at South-Doyle High sophomore where her husband, Justin McCarter, was a coach. McCarter was handed a three-year prison term.

But now, according to the New York Post, the convicted assaulter wants a judge to throw out her victim’s lawsuit because he says the teen engaged in the sex voluntarily.

The lawsuit filed by the teenager claims that McCarter repeatedly molested him after he and his older brother moved into the McCarters’ home in 2014. The lawsuit alleges that the McCarter’s were having marital problems and that Kelsey McCarter took her frustrations out on the teenager.

“[The boy] claims that he suffered injury from the repeated ‘sexual abuse’ by Ms. McCarter,” the lawsuit says. The filing also notes that past statements allow “the conclusion that [he] was a willing participant in numerous sexual encounters with Ms. McCarter.”'
