KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The wife of a former East Tennessee high school assistant football coach is facing sex charges involving a player.

The Knoxville News Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1SAKcBN) reports a grand jury presentment made public Friday shows that 26-year-old Kelsey McCarter is charged with six counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and one count of exploitation of a minor by electronic means.

She is the wife of former South-Doyle High School assistant football coach Justin McCarter, who resigned from his position at the Knoxville school earlier this year. Justin McCarter was not charged.

According to the presentment, the sexual encounters occurred last year and included at least one instance in which Kelsey McCarter shared electronic images of sexual activity with the juvenile.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Kelsey McCarter has an attorney.
