Twin Cities coach faces charges over lewd photos

ST. PAUL -- A lacrosse coach for the White Bear Lake Area school district is accused of sending lewd photos to a 14-year-old student, charges say.

Amber Joi Cron, 20, of Forest Lake faces one count of distributing obscene material, according to the criminal complaint filed against her in Ramsey County District Court Friday.

The crime is a gross misdemeanor. Cron, of Forest Lake, was charged via warrant.

White Bear Lake police began investigating the case after a student reported the conduct to the district’s athletic director earlier this month, charges say.

The teen reported that Cron sent him three lewd images over the social networking site SnapChat on June 10, the complaint said.

He and Cron know each other through lacross, the boy told police, according to legal documents.
