The Police Department has closed its investigation into Robertson High School’s cheerleading coach, who was suspected of “inappropriate” activity.

But Krystle King’s job may still be in jeopardy. She was placed on administrative leave  last month when the allegations became known.

Police Chief Gary Gold said her alleged actions didn’t rise to the level of a crime. Officials haven’t described the nature of the allegations against King.

Las Vegas City Schools Superintendent Rick Romero said the district hasn’t completed its investigation into King.

King is the daughter of Robertson principal Eddie King, and she reads the news on KNMX radio station.

The young King has been the coach at Robertson for the last couple of school years. Before that, the Eastern New Mexico University graduate was the cheerleading coach at West.

While at West, she got in some hot water when photos surfaced on the Internet of her and some of her cheerleaders at a party in which they were holding plastic cups. While some suspected that they were drinking alcohol, that couldn’t be proven.

On another front, the Police Department continues to interview witnesses in connection with Robertson counselor Amadee Duran, who is facing allegations of  “inappropriate contact.”

Duran is also on leave from her job. It is not clear what exactly she is suspected of.
