— An attorney representing Franklin County Schools has requested an investigation into an allegation that a Louisburg High School coach impregnated a student, Louisburg Police Chief Rick Lassiter said Tuesday.

Lassiter said Boyd Sturges, the school district's attorney, called the police department Tuesday to initiate an investigation. He said he has asked the State Bureau of Investigation to assist in the case.

No charges have been filed.

Lassiter said the girl involved in the allegation is a Louisburg High student, meaning the coach would have had a custodial relationship with her. He declined to say how old she is.
