Girls Softball Coach Charged With Sexual Battery

The President of the girls softball league in Biloxi faces charges of sexual battery against a 16 year old girl. Investigators say 41-year old Scott Smith was arrested for having sexual intercourse with the young woman at his house.

Smith was arrested on Friday, and taken to the Harrison County Jail. He was released the next day on a 50-thousand dollar bond.

Smith's been a volunteer with the girls softball league for at least four years as a coach and as president the last two years. A city spokesperson told WLOX News the city will ask the league to relieve Smith of his duties until the case is resolved.
