Ex-coach charged with sex with student

BRANDON, Miss. —

BRANDON, Miss. (AP) — Authorities say a former assistant coach at two Rankin County schools has been charged with gratification of lust and of sexual battery. They say the charges are related to allegedly inappropriate contact with a student.

Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey says Friday in a news release that 27-year-old Matthew Wilder had worked at McLaurin Attendance Center and Florence Middle School.

Bailey says Wilder no longer works for the Rankin County School District. The district didn't immediately respond to a message Friday afternoon.

Bailey says there's no evidence to suggest Wilder was involved in inappropriate contact with more than one student.

It wasn't immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
