FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - The Marion County Board of Education has fired a freshman cheerleader coach who's accused of sexually abusing a 16-year-old male student.
Amanda Jo Barker also is barred from attending future high school events.
The Times West-Virginian reports that the school board unanimously voted Monday to fire Barker from her cheerleading job at North Marion High School.
West Virginia State Police arrested the 31-year-old Barker on Oct. 23 on three counts of sexual abuse by a person in a position of trust.
