On Thursday May 16th, 2013 police arrested 24-year old Angela Hensey who is a volunteer basketball coach at Shadow Ridge HS. Records also show she played basketball there as a student and graduated from the school back in 2007. She was booked into the Clark County Detention Center with two counts of sex with a student and one count of luring a child. There are unconfirmed reports that the victim was a 14-15 year old female basketball player from the school. More Details should be released later today...

This is the second volunteer coach from CCSD to be arrested for sexual misconduct in the past 3 months. In February, 23 year old Angelo Cruz, an assistant JV basketball coach at Legacy HS, was arrested on 2 counts of sexual misconduct with a 16 year old female player. http://www.lvsportz.com/articles/latest/item/559-legacy-hs-jv-basketball-coach-arrested-for-sexual-misconduct.html

Volunteer Coaches for CCSD are required to go through the same background check as all paid employees, including teachers. State law states that teachers, administrators, coaches and volunteers are prohibited from having any sexual relations with a student who attends the school they work for or volunteer at regardless of the students age even though the legal consent age is 16.

As we have stated before, background checks are good but they can only prevent those that have been convicted of past sexual misconduct from working with children.
