A high school soccer coach has been arrested after allegations that he sent nude and sexually explicit photos and a video to female students on Snapchat and had sex with a student.
Andrew Hatton, 28, of Irvine, a soccer coach at Estill County High School, was arrested by state police Tuesday afternoon in Richmond.
He was being held in the Madison County Detention Center on five counts of third-degree rape, two counts of prohibited use of an electronic communication device to procure a minor, two counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and three counts of distribution of obscene matter to a minor.
State police say they were contacted Sunday about the case, and the investigation is continuing.
