A SCHOOL footie coach has ad­mit­ted SHAGGING a teenage boy but claimed she was too DRUNK to re­mem­ber it.

Re­becca Lee Noo­nan ( right) pleaded guilty to hav­ing sex with a 13-year-old boy in his bed­room while his mum was away.

Noo­nan, 33, se­duced the lad by climb­ing into his bed naked, be­fore bonk­ing him – and then beg­ging the teen to keep their romp a se­cret.

The court also heard Noo­nan was a friend of the fam­ily and had known the boy’s mum for a long time.

De­spite con­fess­ing to the crime, the ex-teacher is try­ing to avoid jail by claim­ing she was “so drunk” at the time of the en­counter that she couldn’t re­mem­ber it.

She said: “I was so drunk or so un­der the in­flu­ence of drugs or medicine that I did not know what I was do­ing at the time of the crime.”

Noo­nan, a for­mer head coach at Cham­plin Park High School, in Min­nesota, had her con­tract ter­mi­nated af­ter she was charged with sex­ual mis­con­duct.

She agreed to plead guilty to sex­ual mis­con­duct over the en­counter with the pos­si­bil­ity that the case will later be dis­missed.

Her plea deal means her case will be dis­missed if she meets all re­quire­ments af­ter sen­tenc­ing.

She is set to un­dergo a psy­cho-sex­ual eval­u­a­tion be­fore be­ing sen­tenced in April.
