A West Clermont High School bowling coach has been arrested for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with a former student, according to court documents and school officials.
Kevin Briggs, 31, has been charged with sexual battery after being accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with a student player on the bowling team, court documents said.
Union Township police said they learned this week that Briggs engaged in a sexual relationship with a now 19-year-old woman while she was enrolled at West Clermont. She was a member of the school's bowling team.
Detectives said the relationship started in January of last year, when the woman was a senior.
In a phone call, Briggs admitted to detectives that he did engage in a sexual relationship with the teen.
West Clermont school officials said they are aware of the allegations and that Briggs has been placed on administrative leave and banned from all school properties and activities during the investigation.
"We are deeply troubled and saddened by this news and we take these accusations seriously. Although we still are learning details and the investigation is ongoing, we must work together to ensure that something like this never, ever happens again," school officials said in a statement.
