Boise gymnastics coach indicted on underage sex and alcohol charges
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A local gymnastics instructor has been indicted by a grand jury on five counts of sexual battery on a minor 16 or 17 years of age and four counts of providing minors with alcohol.

The Ada County Sheriff's Office says Derek Q. Nesbitt, 22, was charged Friday.

The sheriff's office believes Nesbitt had sexual contact with four different underage girls.

Officials say they began investigating Nesbitt after receiving reports that he allegedly gave alcohol to minors at his home on the 2200 Block of North Bluewater Place.

The investigation at the time revealed the gymnastics instructor had sexual contact with at least two females between the ages of 16 and 17, deputies say.

Detectives say Nesbitt met the teenagers while assisting the Borah High School cheerleading squad and through his work as an instructor and coach at a Meridian gymnastics facility.

Nesbitt is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
