Heidi Ferber, Hockey Coach Who Had Sex With Girl, Named In Court

KAMLOOPS, B.C. - A female hockey coach who pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting a 15-year-old player will be sentenced on April 2.

Heidi Ferber was a 39-year-old assistant coach four years ago when she began a sexual relationship with the teen player on her Kamloops, B.C., midget hockey team.

The relationship ended the next year and the teen went to police.

Ferber pleaded guilty this month to charges of sexual exploitation and sexual interference with a person under 16.

The young woman says Ferber made the relationship seem like it was OK, but she finally went to police and realized it was not.


Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version wrongly said there was a publication ban on the identity of the coach.
