High School football coach arrested again for sex

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Jackson say a high school football coach's first arrest came because the 15-year-old girl he was texting was really a police officer.

The second arrest of 25-year-old Anthony Anderson on Tuesday came after allegations that he sent explicit photos to a 17-year-old girl and then went to her home and had sex with her.

The Jackson Sun reported Anderson is suspended from his job as a non-faculty assistant football coach at Jackson Central-Merry High School.
Anderson is charged with statutory rape by an authority figure and sexual exploitation of a minor. He was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday.

On his first arrest, Anderson was charged with the solicitation of a minor and is next scheduled in court May 2 in that case.
