CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) - A federal grand jury has indicted a former Kossuth Middle School coach on one count of sexual exploitation of a child.

Micah Wilbanks, 29, was indicted last week.

According to an affidavit filed by federal investigators, a phone discovered by students on May 2 at the school had recorded them changing clothes.

The videos were recovered by federal agents at the request of the Alcorn County Sheriff's Department who had arrested Wilbanks on intoxication and possession of a controlled substance.
