A McGhee School District is facing charges on attempted sexual assault of a minor.
Joshua Smith, age 28, was arrested earlier this week. Smith has been working for the McGhee School District as a coach and a teacher this year. According to Criminal Investigator Mark Allen, the 17-year-old alleged victim said that Smith asked her to perform an oral act on his genitalia. Police say that she is one of seven alleged victims ranging in ages between 14 and 17.
Authorities say the allegations being made against Smith include showing explicit photos to young girls as part of a game in which he asked a girl to pick a number from 1 to 17, then showing the explicit photo number to the girl. Smith, currently charged with one count of attempted sexual assault second degree, could be facing more charges as well.
Authorities say additional allegations remain under investigation which will potentially bring more charges. As of Tuesday afternoon, Smith is on a $25,000 bond pending his next court appearance.
