Alleged William Monroe football paramour indicted
The Greene County Sheriff's Office announced today that it has charged 39-year-old Tammy Harlow Cox of Stanardsville with two felony counts in relation to carrying on several sexual relationships with members of the William Monroe High School football team, three of whom were between the ages of 15 and 18. Cox has been indicted on two counts of taking indecent liberties and having sex with a child while in a supervisory or custodial relationship.
According to the Newsplex, Cox's arrest warrant states that she had sexual intercourse with the student athletes, sent them text messages containing "strong sexual content," and that she sent them a picture of herself "where she exposes her full face and breast."
Like Daniel Widdowfield, the 24-year-old Albemarle man who was allegedly caught in an underage sex solicitation sting in July, Cox has a Facebook account (log-in required). However, unlike Widdowfield, who "friended" over 100 local underage girls through the popular social networking site, Cox boasts but one friend on her page, though that friend is a boy who's a junior at William Monroe. Still, Cox insists on her page that her relationship status is "Married," and that she is only looking for "Friendship."
The Greene County magistrate set Cox's bond at $5000, and she is expected in court Thursday, October 9, at 9am. If convicted, she faces up to 10 years in prison.
Meanwhile, the William Monroe Green Dragon football team will do their best to focus on the task at hand on the field tonight, as they have a road game against the King George Foxes at 7:30pm, their first contest since the Greene sheriffs announced they were investigating the alleged sexual improprieties.
