Former Stanhope Elmore Coach Jeffrey Stanton has been indicted on one count of having sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old student.
Stanton was originally charged in February with first degree rape. The Elmore County School Board terminated Stanton's employment, after the initial charged earlier this year.
Stanton's bond was set at 10 thousand dollars. His arraignment is scheduled for next Tuesday.
During the preliminary hearing, a Millbrook Police Department detective said the student was raped on Stanton's desk. The student reportedly mentioned the incident to a counselor who then contacted the Alabama Department of Human Resources.
The defense alleges the student waited about nine months to confide in someone about the alleged rape. The defense also said Stanton was in a relationship with the victim's mother for nine months.
Elmore County District Attorney Randall Houston says juveniles are typically "late reporters" and the statute of limitations never expires for sexual assault charges.
