Kinkade pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor, Aug. 19.
“Between the months of April 2014 and May 2014, I did engage in sexual intercourse with an enrolled student of the Tonasket High School, who was at least 16-years-old, but no more than 21 years old, to whom I was not married,” wrote Kinkade in a letter to the court. “During this time I was employed by the Tonasket School District.
"I was 60 months older than the individual at the time of the occurrence.”
