Hutchinson is no longer listed as a staff member on the Auburn City School’s website.

The victim reportedly said there was another incident of sexual contact with Hutchinson in January. In both incidents, the student reportedly met the coach for one-on-one training.

An Alabama judge ruled there was enough evidence to send the case to the grand jury for indictment consideration.
Hutchinson was ordered to stay off Auburn City School property while remaining free on a $60,000 bond.
