A former teacher and boys basketball coach at North Douglas High School in Drain was arraigned Monday on sex abuse charges allegedly involving an underage female in Douglas County.

Shane Adrian Mast, 31, was arraigned on five counts of third-degree sexual abuse, five counts of contributing to the sexual delinquency of a minor and one count of furnishing alcohol to a person under 21 years of age, Douglas County Deputy District Attorney Jodee Jackson said after the arraignment.

A grand jury indicted Mast on the charges on Dec. 18. The charges stem from alleged contact with a female between June 1 and Aug. 1, 2009, in an unspecified place in Douglas County, Jackson said, citing a copy of the indictment.

The female was younger than 18, according to the indictment. Jackson declined to say whether Mast knew the alleged victim and if so, how.
