A teenage boy is suing the Knox County School Board, his former football coach and the coach’s wife after he suffered sexual abuse while living at the coach’s house, Knoxnews reports. The lawsuit, filed in Knox County Circuit Court, seeks $2 million in damages for the sexual abuse suffered by the 14-year-old from the coach’s wife, Kelsey McCarter. McCarter is currently serving a three-year prison sentence after pleading guilty last year to six counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and one count of exploitation of a minor by electronic means.
