OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- Two civil lawsuits filed against Dwight Bowling, the Monroe County School District, and some administrators appear to be settled.

The attorney for Bowling and the school district tell WTVA.com there appears to be an agreement on settling the cases.

They say the cases remain open until the settlements are finalized and approved by a federal judge.

The lawsuits, filed by two former students, say Bowling engaged in illegal sexual activity with them while he was working at Smithville High School.

Bowling pleaded guilty to federal and state charges including fondling, sexual battery, child exploitation, bribery of a witness, tampering with a witness, and enticement of a minor for sex.

As for two lawsuits filed against the school district by insurance carriers claiming they shouldn't be held financially responsible for Bowling's actions, those suits have apparently also been settled.
