Nicholas Federico, a former Woodburn High School teacher and football coach, on Nov. 15 awaits sentencing for sexually abusing a student. He was convicted and sentenced to 30 months in prison.

A former student at Woodburn High School who was sexually abused by a former teacher and head football coach at the school has filed a $3 million lawsuit against the district.

In the lawsuit filed Nov. 28 in Marion County Circuit Court, the student is seeking $3 million in damages for the emotional distress, pain and suffering she alleges was caused by the district’s failure to prevent sexual abuse on district property.

Nicholas Federico, 41, was convicted and sentenced to 30 months in prison for sexually abusing the student. He will also have 57 months of post-prison supervision, will have to pay federal fines and will have to register as a sex offender.

Federico was 37 and the student’s weight training teacher for two years at Woodburn High School when he began exchanging sexual texts on Snapchat with her. The two had a sexual relationship for a year and three months that began when the student was 17 and continued after she turned 18.

According to the lawsuit, Frederico at times used a Woodburn School District issued-iPad to send explicit messages to the student while she was a minor. The complaint also alleges that Frederico kissed the student in a Woodburn School District middle school parking lot and engaged in sexual intercourse with her in his office at the high school.
