Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A student in the ROTC program at Sunrise Mountain High School is claiming that she only had sexual relations with her advisor because she was worried about her future military career.
49-year-old Douglas Young was arrested on May 23 after detectives received information that Young was having sexual relations with a student.
According to the arrest report released by Las Vegas Metropolitan Department, the relationship began in September of 2011 and ended in April of this year.
The student claims that she became close to Young after he noticed her for her leadership skills.
He promoted her within the ROTC program and became the student's mentor.
The student even became his student aide so that they could spend more time together.
The student claims that Douglas would share stories about his college days and his time in the military.
The student says that Douglas told her that females must use their sexuality to advance in the military and that it was something that she would have to accept if she wanted to advance her career in the military.
According to the student, she felt that she was coerced into having a sexual relationship with Young.
After the first time, the student claims that Young gave her $300. She also claims that Young told her that he could not give her $300 every time but he would come up with something.
Over the next couple of weeks, the student would spend time with Young and he would take her out to eat or shopping after they had sex.
It was during discussions with a military recruiter that the student learned that Young could not help her advance her career in the military.
She then began trying to separate herself from Young.
The relationship came to the attention of the school staff and the police were contacted.
Young volunteered for questioning on Wednesday afternoon.
After an interview and a search of his residence where the alleged sexual relationship took place, Young was arrested and booked into Clark County Detention Center.
According to state law, sexual conduct between certain employees of schools or volunteers at schools and pupils is illegal regardless of age or consent.
