Wis coach accused of relationship with student

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 26-year-old Milwaukee woman who helped coach high school soccer is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old female student.

Emily Patterson was charged Friday with felony sexual assault of a student by school staff. The criminal complaint quotes the student saying the two became close after they talked about the student's personal and family problems.

The complaint says Patterson stayed twice at the girl's home in January, when they inappropriately touched each other.

Patterson was an assistant coach for the junior varsity team at Brown Deer High School. No attorney was listed in online court records and Patterson's home number could not be located.

Her initial court appearance is Feb. 24. If convicted, she face up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
