What led to Ann Kuroki an Idaho basketball coach teacher sexually preying on a teen male student? Had only been hired in October.
Also making her foray of female school teachers sleeping with their male students is Idaho basketball coach, 26 year old woman, Ann Kuroki who has been accused of having physical trysts with a teen male student.
KMTV reported the Gooding High School coach arrested Friday night in Gooding, with the educator booked on a charge of felony sexual battery of a person aged 16 to 17 years.
Gooding is a community of 3,500 about 100 miles southeast of Boise.
Kuroki’s arrest comes after having been hired in October as a boys junior varsity basketball coach, according to school board meeting minutes.
An agenda for the school board’s upcoming Tuesday meeting shows an agenda item for Kuroki’s termination.
Police launch investigation after ‘tip-off’ against Ann Kuroki:
Gooding Police Chief Dave Fisher said that the school district terminated Kuroki’s employment on Thursday morning.
Police said they began investigation into alleged ‘improprieties’ after receiving a tip that Kuroki was potentially engaged in a relationship with a student.
According to her LinkedIn page, Kuroki graduated in 2015 from Southern Virginia University, where she played on the women’s varsity basketball team.
She was a captain of the team in her senior year, along with having played tennis for the private Division III university, which is affiliated with the Mormon church.
According to her Facebook page, Kuroki was previously employed as a nanny in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Police Chief Fisher said the school district would be conducting an internal investigation in addition to the criminal investigation.
Kuroki is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.
If convicted, Kuroki could face either up to 25 years in prison or up to life in prison, depending on the classification of the sexual battery charge against her.
To date authorities have yet to say what led to the teacher abusing her position of authority, trust and power and sexually preying on her male victim, a course of practice that sees no signs of abating amongst female teachers.
