Former Cheer Coach Gets Jail in Sex Case

((Jupiter, Florida) In September 2006, 22-year-old cheerleading coach and Christian school assistant, Colleen N. Grear, was arrested and charged with sex assault of a 14-year-old boy she seduced through

Grear was charged with one count of using a computer to seduce or solicit a child and three counts of sexual assault of a child under age 18.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, Grear allegedly met the boy at least three times and had sex with him at least once. The inappropriate behavior was discovered by the boy's mother who alerted the police.

In the latest development,
On Wednesday, Grear, now 23, pleaded guilty to lewd and lascivious battery, agreeing to spend a year in the county jail followed by two years on house arrest and then 10 years on sex offender probation. She faced a maximum prison term of 15 years.

Palm Beach County Circuit Judge Krista Marx ordered Grear to register as a sex offender.

Being placed on sex offender probation carries special conditions regular probationers don't have, such as being prohibited from living within 1,000-feet of a park, school or playground and barring contact with children under 18.

Grear cannot have a job where kids regularly congregate and she cannot own or view pornography. She must submit to an HIV test and undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation and complete any recommended treatment. If she violates her probation, she faces 15 years behind bars.
Grear's attorney, Jason Weiss, said, "She relates on an immature level."
