CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police say sex between an athletic trainer and a high school student went on all summer.
Melinda Ilg is on administrative leave from Carolinas Medical Center after the arrest. Police said the 29-year-old was a trainer assigned to the Vance High School football team.
They said that's where she met the 17-year-old player and carried on a relationship from June until August.
"This is high school," student Tatyana Jones said. "We're students. She's like 20, 30 years old trying to have a relationship with a young person?"
Eyewitness News went to Ilg's home, but no one was there.
She's due in court later this month.
