Alisha Yeates, 27, was charged with seven counts of lewd conduct with a minor under 16.
An eastern Idaho judge didn't like what he saw in a plea deal involving a former high-school soccer coach charged with having sexual relations with a minor
When former Blackfoot High School girls' soccer coach Alisha Yeates, 27, was arrested for lewd conduct with a minor in August 2015 it was learned she had been accused of abuse before. Court documents revealed allegations of abuse dating back to 2011, but the charges had been dismissed and Yeates was hired as a high-school soccer coach in the Bingham County community.
Prosecutors said the most recent charges stemmed from incidents occurring between 2012 and 2014 in both Bannock and Bingham counties.
Now, KIDK-TV reports retired Judge Jon Shindurling, filling in for Judge David C. Nye, presided over a June 24 court hearing in Blackfoot where he rejected the proposed plea agreement. KIDK-TV reports a new judge has also been assigned to the case and a new hearing has been scheduled for Thursday, June 30.
