NORTH BELLE VERNON, Pa. (AP) - July 30, 2010

Westmoreland County detectives say 36-year-old Heather Prinkey, of North Belle Vernon, acknowledged having a sexual relationship with the girl who was 13 when the alleged incidents began in May 2008. Police say they continued through September.

Prinkey is a councilwoman in the tiny borough, and also serves as a girl's softball coach in a local league.

She was jailed on charges including statutory sexual assault before posting bond Friday.

Prinkey's home phone has been disconnected and her attorney did not immediately return a request for comment Friday.
