A federal grand jury in Mississippi has indicted an Alabama high school football coach on charges of child molestation and trying to get the victim to lie to authorities about the incidents.
The indictment came Thursday from a grand jury in Oxford.
Dwight Bowling was indicted on one count of harassing a witness and four counts of coercing a minor into having sex,
The indictment came one day after prosecutors produced transcripts from taped conversations in which Bowling encouraged one of the alleged victims to lie about whether they'd had a sexual relationship.
Documents show investigators secretly recorded conversations between Bowling and one teenager less than two weeks ago.
Bowling faces a maximum life sentence if convicted.
