A former assistant softball coach in Southern California was sentenced to six months in jail in connection with a guilty plea to three felony counts and three misdemeanor counts related to marijuana incidents with former student athletes.
As reported by the Southern California News Group (SCNG), former Magnolia High assistant softball coach Tiffani Aguirre pleaded guilty to the following charges: three felony counts of furnishing marijuana to a minor, and misdemeanor counts of unlawful importation, sale or gift of marijuana and contributing the delinquency of a minor.
Together, the charges combined for a sentence of six months in prison for a coach who allegedly twice drove student athletes from her team to a park in Buena Park, Calif., furnished them with marijuana and then smoked the drug alongside them.
The drug taking, which occurred in spring 2017, was reported to the Anaheim Police Department just more than a year ago. SCNG said that a staff member from Magnolia High sent notice to the police, which led to a police investigation and, eventually, the charges to which Aguirre has now pleaded guilty.
There’s no sense as to whether Aguirre will attempt to return to high school coaching after she is released, but the 22 year old did not coach in 2018 after being released from her position at Magnolia in May 2017.
