FUQUAY-VARINA, NC (AP) -- A former Wake County high school girls basketball coach has pleaded guilty to sex charges involving a female student.
WRAL-TV reported that Mardy Lee Cutchin of Fuquay-Varina was charged with three counts of sexual offense and two counts of sexual battery. Prosecutor Melanie Shekita said Monday the pair had agreed to kill themselves if Cutchin was sentenced to jail.
The plea agreement calls for Cutchin to serve five years of probation, pay a $200 fine and register as a sex offender.
Cutchin also was a physical education teacher at Fuquay-Varina High School until his arrest last February.
