Former softball coach at Mussleman High accused of sexually abusing player

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A former assistant softball coach at Musselman High School is being accused of sexually abusing one of her players last season.

According to the Herald Mail, Nicole Dusing, 22, of Bunker Hill was arraigned yesterday on one count of sexual abuse by a parent, guardian, custodian or person in a position of trust to a child.

A complaint filed against Dusing accused her of engaging in a sexual relationship with a teenage student between April and June.

Court records show Dusing reportedly admitted to having an intimate relationship with the student on June 2, just a day after the victim’s mother told police she found videos and photographs of Dusing and her child engaged in intimate and sexual contact.

General counsel and assistant superintendent for Berkeley County Schools Laura Sutton told the Herald Dusing’s coaching permit with the state Department of Education expired June 30 and would not be renewed.

Dusing was reported to the state superintendent.
