North Mississippi middle school coach accused of filming girls locker room

CORINTH (AP) — A middle-school coach in Mississippi arrested on drug charges is accused of secretly videotaping the girls basketball locker room.

News outlets cite a Tuesday statement from the Alcorn County Sheriff’s Office that says 29-year-old Micah Macay Wilbanks has been formally charged with five counts of secretly photographing for lewd purposes.

He was arrested May 2 by deputies acting on a tip about secret filming in the locker room at Kossuth Middle School. He was arrested on campus on charges of public intoxication, methamphetamine possession and drug paraphernalia possession. The charges related to filming came after an active investigation.

He remains jailed on $125,000 bond. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Reports did not include comment from the Alcorn School District.
