A Phoenix, Arizona elementary school physical education teacher and coach was charged Wednesday with 3 counts of sexual assault with a minor.
36 year old Nicole Wooten, who has been working at Herrera School for the Fine Arts and Dual Language since 2000, is being accused of sexually abusing an 8th grade female student in 2005-2006.
The abuse, referred to as ‘inappropriate touching’, is said to have happened at Wooten’s apartment on 3 separate occasions.
Wooten was arrested on Wednesday and after admitting to the allegations in an interview, was placed on unpaid leave on Thursday. She is being held without bond.
In Arizona there is no statute of limitations for sexual conduct with a minor under the age of 15.
