A freshman cheerleading coach at North Marion High School was arrested Tuesday morning, over accusations that she performed oral sex on a 16-year-old student three different times.
Police said 31-year-old Amanda "Mandi" Jo Barker did this on the couch inside her home, once her children and husband would go to bed.
Barker is charged with three counts of sexual abuse by a parent, guardian, or custodian or person in a position of trust to a child. She's out on a $15,000 bond and faces 30 to 60 years in prison if convicted.

If you know or suspect child abuse, call Sgt. Scott with the State Police Crimes Against Children Unit at (304) 367-2701.
