Former Thorp track coach facing new charge

(WEAU) - A former assistant Thorp track coach accused of having a sexual relationship with a student is facing a new charge.

Scott Bergman, 43, is charged in Clark County court with a felony count of sexual assault of a student by school staff and two misdemeanors. Investigators say Bergman violated the conditions of his bond by having contact with the 17 year old girl. They say Bergman and the girl were found together at a church near Thorp Wednesday.

Bergman was arrested and taken to jail.

In February, the Thorp School District banned Bergman from attending any activities involving Thorp students.

He faces a maximum of six years in prison on the felony charge.
