GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) — A former basketball and softball coach at Lake Tahoe’s Whittell High School has pleaded guilty to a charge accusing her of having sex with two students.

The (Gardnerville) Record-Courier reports 29-year-old Lindsey Oexle admitted to the gross misdemeanor charge in Douglas County District Court last week as part of a plea agreement to avoid two felonies.

Court records indicate the students were males over the age of 16 when the incidents occurred in 2018. Under Nevada law, it is a crime for a teacher to have sex with a pupil.

Oexle was living in Sparks when she was charged in December 2018. She is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 26.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of a year in jail and $2,000 fine but the newspaper reports prosecutors have agreed not to recommend any jail time.
