DETROIT (WJBK) -

Samantha Sullivan is a former soccer coach. Prosecutors say an after game celebration in May with her players ended up in drunken sex on Detroit's Derby Hill, a park near Mound and Outer Drive.

We are told the 23-year-old Sullivan was working for the Police Athletic League as part of their after-school program at Detroit's Osborn High School. Detroit Public Schools says that program was not sponsored or paid for by the school or the district.

The former coach is now charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct and providing alcohol to minors.

The alleged victims are two teenage boys ages 16 and 17. It is alleged Sullivan took them out for pizza, ended up at a liquor store where she bought alcohol for them, then went to Derby Hill where police and prosecutors say she had sex with the teens.

Police say the 17-year-old came home staggering drunk. His mother had been calling him all night worried and wondering about his whereabouts. That is when the story unfolded, the investigation ensured and the charges were filed.

Investigators and potentially alleged victims were expected to testify Tuesday, but Sullivan's new attorney requested time to review the evidence.

Sullivan is now due back in court on August 27. She remains free on bond and left court without commenting.

Detroit Public Schools released the following statement:

"The individual in question is not an employee of Detroit Public Schools and the allegations being made against her involve conduct that did not occur on school grounds. However, we take allegations of this nature very seriously and as soon as school leadership was made aware of the alleged conduct, the proper authorities were immediately contacted."

Detroit PAL also released this statement:

"We at Detroit PAL have been cooperating fully with the police and school officials in this investigation. Our first concern is always for the kids who participate in our programs and for the hundreds of volunteers and supporters who are the basis of this organization.  Because this is a formal police matter, we must refer any additional questions to Sgt. Eren Stephens of the Detroit Police Department."
