A former high school and collegiate basketball star-turned-coach was arrested and charged with having sex with the girls she coaches. Marquita Adley (pictured), was taken into custody Tuesday and charged with three counts of sexual battery by a custodian on a victim under 18 years of age.
Adley was released on $15,000 bond after spending the night in jail. The West Broward High School girls basketball interim coach is accused of fondling a 16-year-old girl and committing other sex acts on her between April and June at the girl’s house, a teammate’s house and during a road trip.
The girl told police that she engaged in consensual sex with the coach. She said that she did not ask Adley to stop or push her away. But in Florida a 16-year-old can’t consent to sex with an adult.
