Authorities say a longtime public school coach accused of sexual contact with a student at Hancock High has been arrested on a similar allegation involving a student while she coached at Pearl River Central High.
The Sun Herald reports 31-year-old Leslie Danielle Dewitt, of Perkinston, was arrested Thursday by the Pearl River County Sheriff's Office.
Chief Deputy Shane Tucker says Dewitt was booked on a charge of touching of a child under the age of 18 for lustful purposes.
Tucker says the arrest came after a girl's mother signed a complaint against Dewitt, alleging the incident occurred in May 2012.
Hancock County deputies arrested Dewitt on March 15 on three sexual battery counts allegedly involving one girl over a period of three years.
