THORP, WI (WTAQ) - A former assistant high school track coach in west central Wisconsin is free on bond, after being charged with having a sexual relationship with one of his female athletes.
43-year-old Scott Bergman of Thorp is due back in court Thursday on a felony count of sexual assault by a school staffer, and two misdemeanor counts of having sex with a child 16 or older.
Prosecutors said Bergman started the relationship last fall, when he was coaching the 17-year-old girl at Thorp High School.
School officials called police. And officers reportedly found nude photos of the girl and intimate text messages on his cell phone.
Bergman was fired last November. He posted a $2,000 bond Monday.
