Former Blaine girls' basketball coach charged with sexual contact with player

ANOKA, Minn. - A former Blaine assistant girls' basketball coach is charged with having sexual contact with her 14-year-old player.

Twenty-year-old Jenessa Diamond White of St. Paul was charged in Anoka County court Thursday with second- and third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

White is accused of sexual activity with the girl in a car parked in a Blaine park Tuesday night.

According to the criminal complaint, a police officer approached the car and found White and the girl inside.

The complaint says White initially told the officer she was 16, but later corrected herself and said she was 20.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press ( http://bit.ly/GW6zJc) reports the 14-year-old told the officer the two were dating.

White posted $10,000 bail and was released from jail. A home telephone number for her could not be found.
