PURVIS, Miss. — Authorities say Zachary Riley, who had been contracted to coach cheerleaders at local schools, was booked into the Lamar County Jail on two counts of statutory rape and one count of child molestation.
The 23-year-old Riley, of Sumrall, had taught routines to units at Purvis High and Presbyterian Christian School.
