Gregg "Chooch" McCoy
A local girls' coach is free on bond after being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a female, juvenile student.
Gregg "Chooch" McCoy turned himself into the Sequoyah County Sheriff's office Tuesday evening after a felony arrest warrant was issued for his arrest earlier that day. The warrant included two felony counts.
According to the affidavit filed with the charges, a female student alleges that she and McCoy exchanged inappropriate photos, messages and that McCoy also sent her at least one inappropriate video.
On. Jan. 18 Sequoyah County deputies were given two cell phones belonging to the juvenile that allegedly contain evidence of an inappropriate nature.
During an interview with deputies held on the same day McCoy was asked if he had ever sent photos or videos to the juvenile. McCoy "became nervous" and stated that he didn't "deny or confirm that photos or videos had been sent."
McCoy's cell phone was seized and entered into evidence.
McCoy resigned from his position at Brushy Public School on Jan. 18.
McCoy was charged with two felony counts. Count 1: Lewd Molestation-a Felony, punishable by imprisonment for up to 3 to 20 years. Count 2: Soliciting Sexual Conduct or Communication with Minor by Use of Technology-a Felony, punishable by imprisonment up to 10 years or a fine up to $10,000, or both.
McCoy was released on a $20,000 bond.
