West Broward’s Girls Basketball Coach Arrested on Sex Charges

West Broward High School girls basketball interim coach Marquita Adley was released Wednesday morning on a $15,000 bond, after spending the night in jail on sex charges. Adley, 25, was arrested Tuesday and is being charged with three counts of sexual battery by a custodian on a victim under 18 years of age. The former Florida International University Panther coached the high school team to a district title and deep into the regional playoffs this season. Marquita Adley, the youth basketball coach at several schools, camps and travel basketball teams, posted bond and was released at 9:49 a.m. Wednesday. A 16-year-old girl is the alleged victim who was a member of the Lady Storm basketball team in Davie. No one knows yet if she also goes to West Broward as well. The sexual contact is alleged to have happened on several occasions between the months of April and June at the girl’s house, a teammate’s house during a sleep-over party and in North Carolina on a basketball tournament trip. According to reports, Adley “digitally penetrated” and performed oral sex on the girl. All incidents lasted less than five minutes and the girl advised that she “actively participated in the sexual encounters and never told Adley to stop or tried to push her way. However, the girl is under the age of consent. Police say once the girl’s father became aware of the relationship he contacted the police. While Adley’s status with West Broward is unclear, her name has been removed from the school’s athletics website. For more information go to the Sun Sentinel.
