BLUEFIELD, W.Va. -- Felony sex charges against a former Mercer County teacher and coach are heading to a grand jury.
The 34-year-old defendant, Jonathan Kirk of Walton, waived his right to a preliminary hearing Monday in Mercer County Magistrate Court.
The Bluefield Daily Telegraph (http://bit.ly/XBSFDs) says the case will be heard by grand jurors in June.
Kirk faces more than a dozen sex charges involving students at PikeView High School. The charges include the use of minors in filming sexually explicit conduct and sexual abuse by a parent or custodian.
Kirk is being held on $100,000 cash bond. A bond hearing is scheduled for later this week.
