On May 2nd, Alcorn County Investigators were called to Kossuth Middle School in reference to allegations that a Kossuth Middle School coach was secretly recording female students in the basketball locker room.
When Investigators arrived they came into contact with 29 year-old Micah Macay Wilbanks of Corinth, MS.
During that contact investigators placed Wilbanks under arrest for suspicion of public intoxication. They then discovered that Wilbanks was in possession of alleged methamphetamine, as well as paraphernalia used to smoke methamphetamine.
Wilbanks was transported to the Alcorn County Jail, and was charged with public intoxication, possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine), and possession of paraphernalia.
Earlier this week Wilbanks was formally charged with five counts of secretly photographing for lewd purpose in relation to secretly videoing in the Kossuth Middle School girls basketball locker room.
Wilbanks had an initial appearance in front of Justice Court Judge Steve Little. Judge Little set a $20,000.00 bond for each count of secretly photographing and $20,000.00 for felony possession of controlled substance. Judge Little set a bond of $2,500.00 on both misdemeanor charges of public intoxication, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Wilbanks remains in the Alcorn County Jail on a total of $125,000.00 bond.
A probable cause hearing was required due to Wilbanks being a teacher and being on duty at the time the crime allegedly took place.
