Grand Jury Will Hear Case of Warren County Volleyball Coach Accused of Sex with Minor
The case against a Bowling Green volleyball coach accused of having sex with an underage girl is headed to a grand jury.
Twenty-eight-year-old Brian Gifford was in Warren District Court Friday and waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
A Kentucky State Police investigation found that Gifford had sex on multiple occasions with a 15-year-old player that he met while coaching for the Barren River Area Volleyball Organization. Warren County Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Cohron says the investigation is ongoing.
"Our main concern is to make sure that any children affected by this individual come forward, and if anybody does have information we would ask them to contact Kentucky State Police or the Commonwealth's Attorneys Office," urges Cohron.
Gifford remains in the Warren County Regional Jail. His attorney Alan Simpson declined to comment Friday.
