In the warrant for the arrest of local teacher and coach Anthony Ribaudo, he admits to Fountain Police officers that he had sex with a student.
According to the affidavit, the 17 year old students mother found text messages on her daughter's phone that were sexual in nature. When she talked to her daughter the teen admitted to having sex with Ribaudo---a teacher, coach and Dean of Students at Fountain Ft. Carson High School.
She told investigators it was consensual, but at 17 years old that is illegal.
When police talked to Ribaudo, he admited to officers to having sex with the student twice. He said he was having trouble in his marriage and the relationship "unfolded."
The student says the first encounter happened at the school during a basketball tournament, the second at Ribaudo's brothers house in Fountain.
Ribaudo resigned from his positions at the school Monday. He faces a charge of Sexual Assault on a Child by One in a Position of Trust.
