Former coach accused of having sexual contact with student

ELMORE COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - A former Prattville Christian Academy baseball coach has been arrested and charged with having sexual contact with a student.

Matthew Kicker is also charged with electronic solicitation of a child.

Chief Deputy District Attorney CJ Robinson said Kickers was arrested Friday morning.

“These crimes happened while he was a coach there at Prattville Christian with a student at the school,” Robinson said.

The deputy DA added that the alleged crimes involve a female student and that some of the inappropriate contact happened on campus.

Kicker was placed under a $45,000 bond but has since bonded out.

We reached out to Prattville Christian Academy about Kicker’s arrest but the school didn’t comment and referred questions to law enforcement.
