A Northern Kentucky tennis instructor was arrested Wednesday afternoon following accusations that he raped one of his students in 2019, according to the Boone County Sheriff's Office.
Court C. Clark, 27, of Cold Spring, is facing a single count of third-degree rape, documents filed in Boone County District Court show.
The victim reported the rape to detectives on Monday, court records state, adding she met Clark at the Five Seasons Family Sports Club in Crestview Hills, Kentucky in 2019 when she was 15 years old.
While away on spring break, a criminal complaint states, the victim received "flirtatious messages" from Clark and the pair started dating shortly after.
"That same year, Clark and the victim engaged in sexual intercourse at her home in Boone County," officials said in a news release.
The complaint says Clark, who was 24 when he met the victim, apologized between 35 and 40 times for being involved with the victim during a phone call recorded by detectives.
On that phone call, Clark also told the victim she needed to "delete everything on her phone that involved the two of them as well as throw away gifts that he provided her," the complaint reads.
"I was wrapped up in a situation I shouldn't have been in, but I did it anyway," Clark is quoted as saying during the conversation.
Attorney information for Clark wasn't available as of 10:30 a.m. Thursday.
Clark is no longer employed as a tennis instructor for Five Seasons, Rick Roberts, regional general manager for the club, said in an email to The Enquirer.
He's currently being held at the Boone County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond, court records show. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 1.
