MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The Guntersville girls’ soccer coach arrested and charged with sexual abuse and human trafficking Friday filed a petition against Madison County Sheriff Blake Dorning Monday afternoon.

David Jacobs Barrow was arrested Friday after coaching his girls varsity team at the State soccer semifinals in John Hunt Park.

The petition filed on Barrow’s behalf states he was arrested without a warrant and claims he was held for more than two days without a bond hearing or a probable cause hearing.

The complaint demands that Dorning bring him before a judge “without delay.”

Barrow faces three counts of sexual abuse 1st degree and one count of human trafficking 1st degree, according to jail records obtained by WHNT. Kristian Griffin was also arrested in connection to this case, and is  facing charges for conspiracy to commit sexual abuse of a child less than 12.

He was bailed out of jail Monday afternoon.
