FAIRMONT -- A fired cheerleading coach charged with sexually abusing male students has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual abuse by guardian.
Mannington resident and former North Marion High School coach Amanda Jo Barker also pleaded guilty in Marion Circuit Court this week to one count of soliciting a minor via computer.
Barker was charged last year with abusing a 16-year-old and then charged again when two 16- and 17-year-old boys came forward with accusations.
A criminal complaint said she had oral sex with one boy in her home after her husband and children had gone to bed.Barker, 31, will be sentenced Aug. 5. She could face 10-20 years in prison.
