The girl's basketball coach and assistant football coach at Winter Park High School has been arrested and charged with five counts, including lewd acts on a child, and attempted extortion.Ashley Sinclair Brown, 29, was arrested at his Winter Park home Thursday after complaints from a student at the school surfaced, alleging he fondled her, and slapped and pinched her rear end.The relationship involved inappropriate touching and texting, some of which occurred on campus, authorities said.
Connor Cahill, a 2013 graduate of Winter Park High School, was shocked and found the allegations hard to believe at first."Coach Sinclair was my football coach in 9th and 10th grade, and he was a really cool guy. A good football coach, and all the players liked him."Cahill did not like the black eye the charges will bring."I'm really sad to hear that puts a bad rep on Winter Park High School."
Authorities don't think there are other victims.
