Dwight Bowling is being held without bond in Mississippi's Lafayette County. He faces federal charges and state charges in two Mississippi counties.

The charges include fondling, sexual battery and child exploitation. Bowling has pleaded not guilty.

Bowling is now scheduled for trial April 11 in Greenville, Miss. His attorney, Christi R. McCoy of Oxford, filed a motion Monday asking for a new trial date. She says she has another trial set for that same day.
A judge has not ruled on the motion.

Bowling is on administrative leave from his post as football coach at Sulligent High School in Sulligent, Ala.
