Texhoma School Board Brings Coach Back to Work After Accusations

KSCB News - December 16, 2010 12:00 am

The Daily Oklahoman reports a Texhoma basketball coach who has been accused of two counts of second-degree rape while working at another school has returned to work for the Texhoma school district. A former Hennessey female student and basketball player accused Ben Davis Forsythe, who was then the high school girls basketball coach, of having a sexual affair with her from November 2009 to May 2010. He was arrested December 1 at school in Texhoma on complaints of second degree rape. But the 32 year old has not been charged and after being placed on administrative leave with pay, returned to work as the girls junior high and high school basketball coach Monday. It was a school board decision on the advice of Texhoma’s attorney.
