TEXARKANA, Texas -- A former high school coach accused of sexual misconduct with students is set for a pretrial hearing in early July.

Treyvin "Trey" Norman was indicted in Bowie County on two counts of improper relationship between educator and student. The former Liberty-Eylau Independent School District coach, who is free on $20,000 in bonds, appeared before 202nd District Judge John Tidwell on Wednesday and was assigned a pretrial hearing for July 6.

A trial date could could be set at the hearing.

Norman is accused of having sexual contact with two girls in 2018 at his home on Diane Street in Wake Village, Texas, according to a probable cause affidavit. Norman left his job as a coach in October 2018 after allegations of sexual misconduct were brought to the attention of the Wake Village Police by school police.

A 17-year-old student reported that Norman sent her messages on Snapchat telling her she was beautiful, and that she began meeting him at the Walmart Neighborhood Market in Wake Village. From there Norman allegedly drove the girl to his house and had sex with her.

Police have collected surveillance video from the store that allegedly corroborates the girl's account.

An 18-year-old student reported that she began exchanging messages with Norman on Snapchat that eventually became sexual in nature. The girl alleges that she went to Norman's home in August 2018 and smoked marijuana with him before having sex with him.

Improper relationship between educator and student is punishable by two to 20 years in state prison.
