A former Clark County coach now faces charges.

Scott Bergman is accused of having a sexual relationship with one of his teenaged athletes.

He was an assistant track coach at Thorp High School.

Online court records show Bergman, 43, faces a felony charge of sex assault of student by school staff.

According to the criminal complaint, police say Bergman provided a 17-year-old student with alcohol and had nude and partially nude pictures of her on his cell phone.

In the criminal complaint, police say the girl's diary diary and text messages also indicated they were discussing marriage so Bergman would not have to go to jail.

Bergman will be in court on Thursday.
