— A former Wakefield High School softball coach was indicted Monday on 11 counts of sexual activity with a student.

Jamie Lloyd Ayers, 42, of 321 Yellow Poplar Ave., Wake Forest, was arrested May 20 on three counts of the charge after an 18-year-old reported to police that she and Ayers had a sexual relationship for several years.

Indictments indicate the woman was underage and a student at Wakefield High in 2011 and 2012 when the alleged sexual acts occurred at Ayer's home, in his car and several other places, including a softball shed at the high school.

A spokeswoman for the Wake County Public School System said Ayers resigned from the school system on June 13.

He worked for Wake schools since 1998, where he also worked at East Cary Middle School, Cary High School and Wakefield Middle School.

In addition to coaching, he taught health and physical education at Wakefield High.

    Once again I don't know why I didn't get posted yesterday, situations like this always point fingers at the teacher and truth be known the student is just as guilty. Make it right ? NO ! But there is a lot of fault on the student's part.

    I think you're right in this case

    Wonder IF there is *EVIDENCE* of the man being GUILTY?....as it seems like the GRAND JURY is good at just *rubberstamping all indictments* regardless.

    lately its seems that it only takes the media to bypass all of that and get 2nd degree murder and go straight to trial.

    This could have been a case of the student wanting more and this teacher just may have said no. Then the student said, "Yep, I am going to get him." and said something. You never really know.

    Seems the kids at Wakefield knew what was happening all along but didn't really care.

    I don't know why she waited. But if I were a student who had been in that situation, I wouldn't want to report it while I was still a student. The embarrassment would be awful. Maybe she waited until she was done with classes senior year.

    not sure she was complaining, I think she figured that once she was 18 she could say who her boyfriend was and everything would be alright.

    it was a great plan right up until ...

    This man is way to old for her. Student or otherwise. The girl should have known better and not done this as well as the man. I think both should face charges. As long as the system does not hold both accountable, then this type of activity will continue sad to say. Where have our morals gone?

    Another sicko! He didn't think that she would tell! He was and is way out of line!

    Not to stereotype...but every teacher lately with these same charges is a caucasian male, in his 40's, and from a nicer area..ie Cary, Wake Forest. Something has to be wired differently in their minds to enjoy children! SICKENING!!
