ABERDEEN – Dwight Bowling has filed an official notice of his intent to appeal his 300-month prison sentence.

The former Smithville football coach filed the notice last week after Senior U.S. District Judge Glen H. Davidson reinstated his 300-month sentence on charges of enticement of a minor.

The reinstatement came after Bowling appealed to the court to have his sentence vacated because he and his then-attorney Christi McCoy missed the original deadline to appeal the sentence in 2011.

Davidson’s reinstatement essentially reset the appeal deadline and gave Bowling the ability to appeal after Bowling said his attorney didn’t file for him in 2011. McCoy maintained she was fired by Bowling and assumed he had another attorney file the notice of appeal.
