I wonder if this couple has any concept of just how malicious and harmful their actions were towards this 15 year old kid, and just how significant the consequences are likely to be for all involved or otherwise affected? Two adults, both of whom held positions of trust and authority over the kid (since the time she was in middle school, no less), conspiring together over time to manipulate and seduce this kid, and then together as a team repeatedly engaging in group sexual activity with the kid, as well as conducting ongoing sexting and photo exchanges, and likely regular erotic phone calls into the wee hours of the morning. Police reports state the mother of the girl suspects inappropriate communications and activity may have begun before the kid even graduated middle school.
According to news reports, Blair Porter is the one who did all the coordination and made the arrangements for the sexual activities to take place. One can only assume she was the one who greased the skids with this kid so she wouldn't feel intimidated or inhibited by the concept of engaging in sexual activity with her husband, or in engaging in lesbian sex with her. I doubt her husband would have introduced the idea of sexually molesting one of his team's players unless she'd done or said something that made him feel his wife was open to the idea. It certainly seems she was in the driver's seat. Without her involvement in facilitating things, this probably never would have happened.
What a class act! She was the female assistant coach to the soft ball team. Part of her responsibilities in that capacity was to provide an adult female presence to monitor (chaperone) the male coach's interactions with the young girls on his team. If everything is as it seems, her crime was far worse than her husbands.
No doubt there is much more to the story. After all, the time frame cited in the police report for when the two meetings took place was between 10/13 and 4/14. With all the sexting going on for a prolonged period of time, the daily interactions at practices, etc. It's pretty safe to assume there were other face to face meetings beyond just the two cited in the police report.
We'll likely never get to hear about it. Sounds like the evidence against them is pretty substantial. A plea deal is likely. But given the position of trust and authority they held over the girl, and the two of them conspiring together to repeatedly molest this girl....if either get's less than 10 years, it will be a travesty of justice.
The girl will never be the same. Everyone in the community knows who she is and what she did. As long as she remains in that community she will always be known by her classmates and the community at large as the kid who engaged in threesomes with her husband and wife coaches. Her relationships with her friends and teammates will be affected.(My guess is you won't see her on the team roster this coming year.) Her innocence was ripped away from her. No doubt she has already gone into hiding and is only now beginning to grasp the magnitude of what was done to her as her family circles the wagons in an effort to protect her. Her self image, her sexual identity, and the general course of her life will be adversely affected, perhaps defined, by this event for a very long time to come.
Not to forget the unborn child of the Porters, who will likely have to live the first 5 or more years of her life while her parents are in jail. I hope it's a girl, and that when she turns 15, Mike and Blair pause to look at her, where she is at in her physical and emotional development and then consider how they would feel if a couple in their late 20s succeeded in seducing their child into their bed without their knowledge.
I wonder if the sexual pleasure each of the Porter's experienced while molesting this girl was worth the price this girl, and both of their families, will have to pay because of their actions?

there are websites & hotlines to help anyone this has been done to. RAINN website is very helpful for the victim & their friends & family.Pandora's Project is very helpful to survivors. It helps to know others stories & that you are not alone. I was too ashamed to say aloud what happened so I wrote a note to hand to my loved one & started on the road to surviving.
