Indiana Cheerleading Coach Facing Felony Child Seduction Charges

via Greene County Sheriff’s Department

Morgan Judy, a cheer coach at Bloomfield and substitute teacher at Linton-Stockton High School, was arrested last Friday on child seduction charges.

According to the Green County Daily Word, Judy, 23, allegedly invited a student to a party via Twitter in May, where they made out. Judy, however, told police she was drunk and denied kissing or having sex with the student. Her story, and the victim’s, would later change in a follow-up interview.

From the report:

“Later, Morgan was confronted about (student) admitting to kissing, Morgan replied that she didn’t remember due to the alcohol, but would have remembered if she and (student) had sex. Morgan said she probably did invite (student) to the party,” Stille wrote in the probable cause.

In a follow-up interview after a search warrant was obtained on Judy and the student’s cell phone, Stille asked if the student was being honest. The student allegedly stated they did more than kiss.

Judy later admitted to kissing the student in another interview, but denied other allegations.

“Morgan advised that she deleted the communication between (student) off of her phone because ‘it would look bad,’” Stille wrote.

In a June interview, the student reportedly provided more details about the incident and showed messages between Judy and the student which were backed up on a computer where she reportedly told the students not to tell anyone the “hickies” were from her and that she had “huge hickies” on her neck.

Judy was right about one thing: this does look bad.

WBIW reports the victim in this case is a 16-17 year-old student. Judy was booked on Level 5 and 6 felony child seduction charges — she has since posted bail and was released from Greene County Jail.
