      {}NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) - A Fort Dorchester High School coach is in trouble after allegedly having a relationship with a student.

      According to a North Charleston police report, 33-year-old Benjamin LaPrad was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

      LaPrad is the head wrestling coach at the school.

      The report states that the 17-year-old student visited LaPrad's home twice during two school days to make out and sent him a nude photo she thinks he deleted. The student said she and LaPrad remained clothed during each encounter; they just kissed and held each other.

      The girl's parents went to the school and met with officials.

      LaPrad was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. The school district confirmed the investigation.
