The Brantley County Board of Education upheld the termination of baseball coach Keith Mobley late Thursday night after a day long hearing into allegations that he inappropriately touched a female student.
Mobley spent much of Thursday afternoon defending himself against allegations that he touched the student — allegations which led to his dismissal from his job at the school. The hearing began at 9 a.m. Thursday and continued through 6 p.m. with testimony from several witnesses who said the coach did inappropriately touch a student and others who said he did not, and others who said it would not be in Mobley’s character to do so. Details of the event were not immediately available but will be posted here when they are released.
Mobley testified in his own defense Thursday and vehemently denied the allegations.
