HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - The preliminary hearing in Madison County for suspended Guntersville High School soccer coach under investigation is scheduled for September 4 at 9 a.m.

David Barrow was originally charged with one count of first-degree sodomy, one count of human trafficking in the first degree, and one count of sexual abuse of a child less than 12. 

The charges deal with multiple individuals who were either recorded or photographed without their consent. The victims of the child pornography were all under the age of 17. 

He was later charged with 24 counts of producing child pornography, one count of possession of child pornography, one count of possession with intent to disseminate child porn, and one count of aggravated criminal surveillance.

Items were seized from his home in Guntersville and he was accused of taking pictures of some of his victims at his home in Huntsville. 

Barrow waived his original preliminary hearing in June. 

Recent findings showed Barrow had allegedly given money to a woman to assist him in the abuse and he also allegedly partnered with strippers to solicit underage girls.

Barrow remains suspended from the Guntersville school system, according to the district's superintendent.
