Coach Charged Latest

The case of a former local coach was set to come up in Lauderdale County Circuit Court Wednesday, but instead, it's being continued. Rick Roberson's case is being continued until October. Last September he was charged with three different sex crimes; two of those charges were for lustful touching and one was for statutory rape. Court papers show that one of the charges dates back to an incident which allegedly happened in 1984, and another involved a student who was in the 9th grade at the time. As a result of the investigation Roberson was terminated from Clarkdale, where he had worked for more than 20 years.
