PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - A former Moss Point boys’ basketball coach has been charged with having sex with a female student who was a juvenile at the time.

Authorities say the coach and girl had sex several times over three school years.

Mico Cotton is charged with six counts of sexual battery and one count of possession of child pornography.

His bond was set Friday at $35,000.

Authorities say the female students worked as the basketball team’s manager. Police say several nude photos of the girl were found on Cotton’s cellphone, along with a video of her performing oral sex.

In April, Cotton resigned after six years.

He was suspended from his coaching job in December - but remained on staff as a physical education teacher.
