GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The Guntersville City School Board has suspended David Barrow from his coaching position, pending outcome of his charges.

Barrow was arrested on May 9 shortly after coaching the Guntersville High School girls’ varsity team at the State soccer semifinals in John Hunt Park.

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.

Superintendent Dale Edwards said Monday their own investigation indicates this was isolated to Huntsville and there is no evidence Guntersville City Schools is involved at all.

Barrow has a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 19.  No court date has been set for Griffin at this time.

    By the time the preliminary hearing roles around I believe everyone will begin to figure out that Mr. Barrow is innocent.
