La Pine, OR: It’s never been a better time to be a 17-year-old guy. La Pine High School’s cheerleading coach has been arrested on charges of sex abuse and furnishing alcohol to a minor, alleging she engaged in inappropriate behavior with a 17-year-old male student, Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies said Thursday. School officials said she resigned from her position after the investigation began. A staff member at the school, a “mandatory reporter” of abuse under state law, notified the sheriff’s office on March 21 of rumors alleging that Nicole Mickelson, 30, of La Pine, had been involved inappropriately with a 17-year-old male student, said sheriff’s Lt. Deron McMaster.
A responding deputy initiated the investigation, which then was referred to a sheriff’s office school resource deputy. McMaster told NewsChannel 21 Mickelson was partying with four students in early March, including the 17-year-old male she had sex with.
A week ago, when the investigation concluded, Mickelson was arrested on four counts of second-degree sexual abuse, four counts of sexual misconduct and three counts of furnishing liquor to a minor. Mickelson previously had been cited on one count of furnishing liquor to a minor, McMaster said. Mickelson was booked into the county jail in Bend and released after posting 10 percent of her $30,000 bail. She’s due to make an initial court appearance on Thursday, May 2nd at 1:30 p.m.

Cruz told detectives he’s approached hundreds of women and asked to touch or massage their feet by telling them stories like he was trying to earn a Boy Scout community service bade, or that he was a medical student doing research on feet. He would then try to put their feet in his mouth.
Cruz was arrested Wednesday and charged with lewd lascivious conduct on a person under 18, obtaining property by fraud, two counts of battery and one count of attempted battery.
