Ex-high school coach charged with having sex with student

By The Associated Press

PINEHURST, Ga. (AP) — A former Georgia high school coach and teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a student in a 2016 incident.

David Lamberth, who was the head baseball coach at Crisp County High School until he resigned on Oct. 30, was arrested Thursday and charged with assaulting a Dooly County High School student.

“We were requested by the Crisp County Sheriff’s Office to look into allegations of a teacher having sex, allegedly having sex with some students there,” said Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Todd Crosby.

The 42-year-old Lamberth is jailed in Dooly County and bail hasn't been set. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer representing him.

Lamberth was a former special education teacher, who worked in the Crisp County district since 2013, coaching both varsity and middle school sports. GBI said Lamberth was previously a coach and teacher in Gwinnett County.

District Attorney Brad Rigsby said his office and the GBI are still investigating, with additional charges expected.

Investigators are asking anyone with additional information to call the GBI office in Perry at 478-987-4545.
