An Alabama youth softball coach has been charged with abusing one of her players over the course of years.

Meagan Billingsley Deese, 30, of Pelham, was charged with first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and enticing a child to enter a vehicle, house for an immoral purpose. 

Deese was booked into the Jefferson County Jail on a $90,000 bond. 

Police records obtained by the local NBC affiliate, show a woman made a report on Feb. 14 claiming she had been "subjected to unwanted sexual contact" by a coach on her softball team when she was a juvenile. 

The alleged abuse occurred over a span of two to three years but stopped in 2016. Detectives launched an investigation and recently obtained warrants charging Deese in connection with their probe.

Detectives believe there could be more victims in the case and are asking them to come forward.
