Former Marshall Co. football coach waives preliminary hearing

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A former Marshall County High School football coach accused of sex crimes involving a minor waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday in court.

Ron Barnard, 45, faces several charges related to alleged sex crimes involving a minor.

The case was bound over to a grand jury which will meet on July 24. The grand jury will then decide if the case needs to be moved to a higher court.

The sheriff says the victim is a 15-year-old student. The investigation into the alleged crimes started over six months ago.
