A former Giles County high school coach under investigation in Virginia was indicted in a West Virginia Courtroom yesterday.
26-year-old Jarrod Hines is accused of having sex with a 15-year-old student at his home in Peterstown, just across the state line.
Hines resigned from Giles High last month, where he coached Junior Varsity baseball and served as an assistant football coach.

A new V-C-U poll shows Gilmore riding high, with a total of 64- percent of Virginians giving him good or excellent job ratings.
That's double the 32- percent approval he got in a NEWS 7 poll in February, before lawmakers voted on his car tax cut.
