UPDATE: Iuka coach/teacher faces molestation charges

By NEMS Daily Journal

IUKA – A judge ruled Monday there was enough probable cause for an area coach/teacher to face a molestation charge.

Iuka Middle School teacher and coach Tim Yeager is charged with touching a child for lustful purposes. Yeager was released from jail on a $5,000 bond.

A criminal complaint was filed by a child’s parent.

Yeager’s case is now scheduled to be presented to a Tishomingo County grand jury next month to decide if there is enough evidence to have a trial.

Schools officials would not comment on Yeager’s employment status.
