Shelly Duncan – a 48-year-old cheerleading coach and wife of Tishomingo High School Supintendent Kevin Duncan -is accused of striking up a relationship with a 14-year-old student at the Oklahoma school.
Duncan reportedly spoke often with this 14-year-old student and promised to perform a sex act on him with “a cough drop in her mouth” and also touched him inappropriately at Tishomingo High School in Oklahoma.
The mother of the student branded Duncan a “predator” and said she had a “sickness” and not a “crush” after pursuing her teenaged son.
Duncan allegedly told the student that there was “nothing hotter” than a man who loved his family after the boy told Duncan that his mother was his “world.”
“She’s a predator,” the alleged victim’s mother told NewsChannel 4.
“I want to protect my son and any other children that are going to be after him. This isn’t something that just goes away. This isn’t a crush. This is a sickness. This is a disease. This is a problem that is not going to stop until it’s made to stop.”
The mother and the student are remaining anonymous.
Duncan was arrested last September by Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation after the alleged victim’s mother notified police about the suspected “inappropriate relationship.”
Duncan and the boy traded flirty text messages, saying “love you” to one another and calling each other “boo,” according to an affidavit.
She added: “U have no idea what u mean to me”, according to the affidavit. “I’m here for the rest of ur life…I can’t imagine my life [without] u in it.”
Later that month, Duncan took her daughter and the boy to see a movie. The student told authorities that he and Duncan touched each other during the movie and kissed each other once the daughter fell asleep in the car on the way home. One week later, the teenager said Duncan picked him up and brought him to the school where she worked. He “put his hands down Duncan’s pants” and touched “that area down there.”
“She knew it was wrong, and that she could go to prison,” the boy said.
“She told him not to tell anyone because it could ruin a lot of stuff, such as her relationship with him, her relationship with her kids and her job.”
A spokeswoman for the school district told NewsChannel 4: “Tishomingo Public Schools will continue providing full cooperation with the authorities now that charges have been filed against Shelley Duncan.
“She remains suspended without pay, and she has not been on school property since September 16. We want to reassure our community that the district remains steadfast in providing a learning environment that is safe for all students.”
