Melrose coach won’t face charges for sexting teen

Melrose municipal schools

MELROSE, N.M. (KRQE) – Former high school coach accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student will not face charges despite evidence supporting the allegations.

Curry County deputes say their investigation found the Melrose coach may have been sexting with the 15-year-old student but the district attorney says it’s not enough to go to trial.

The alleged victim and the coach deny the allegations.

A second coach at Melrose High School, Allison Draper, is charged with raping a student.

She coached volleyball at Melrose for six years.

That case has not gone to trial yet.

Both Draper and the other coach resigned. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
