Seattle Times staff reporter
A Seattle Prep basketball coach accused of having sex with a female student has been charged with three counts of felony sexual misconduct with a minor.
Khalila O'Rielly-Williams, 23, worked at the Jesuit high school from November 2005 until March, according to charging papers filed Wednesday in King County Superior Court.
Seattle Preparatory School principal Father Michael Tyrrell wouldn't comment on what job O'Rielly-Williams held at Seattle Prep. According to a school Web site, she was a junior-varsity girls basketball coach.
Tyrrell said that when sex allegations surfaced, the case was turned over to Seattle police. He said he wouldn't go into details about the case to protect the identity of the 16-year-old student.
The basketball player told Seattle police that she met O'Rielly-Williams last fall and that they first had sex in February, according to a police report. The majority of the alleged sexual contact was at O'Rielly-Williams' home in Seattle's Central District, police said.
The girl told police they had sex about 10 times. In addition to interviewing the girl, police have collected e-mails, voice-mail messages and notes between the two, a police report said.
O'Rielly-Williams will be arraigned on the charges next Wednesday.
