Tabatha Wethal Headshot

A former prep student-athlete has filed a lawsuit against her private high school in Burbank, Calif., saying she was sexually assaulted by the track-and-field coach in 2019 while attending an away competition overnight.

The lawsuit was filed last week in Los Angeles Superior Court, according to a CBSLA report. The suit alleges that Mohamed Haddada, 27, was the former Providence High School coach who is accused of manipulating the then-16-year-old student-athlete and taking advantage of her age to sexually assault her, then warning her not to tell anyone about it.

The now 18-year-old plaintiff is listed as Jane Doe in the lawsuit.
