Marquita Adley, West Broward High School girls basketball interim coach, arrested on sex charges

West Broward High School girls basketball interim coach Marquita Adley was arrested on Tuesday, by Pembroke Pines Police.

The 25-year-old former Florida International University Panther is charged with three counts of sexual battery by a custodian on a victim under 18 years of age, according to the Broward County Jail booking records.

Adley was accused of having relations with a member of her travel team, unrelated to the high school team that she coached to a district title and deep into the regional playoffs this season.

It was unknown if the alleged victim was a student.

West Broward Athletic Director Jim Darr said he was "shocked" and "sorry to hear the news."

"As a coach, she did a good job with the kids," he said. "She worked them hard, taught [them] as she should as a coach [and] she was developing the players that she had."

Before playing for FIU, the six-foot forward played for Monsignor Edward Pace High School where she was first team all-county and all-state for three years.
