HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A trial date has been set for a former cheerleading coach and one-time Hattiesburg police officer accused of sexual battery.

Shane Wagner's court date has been set for May 11th.

Wagner was arrested in 2008 by Mississippi Bureau of Investigations investigators on the charge, but they haven't commented on the specifics of the case.

Wagner was released on bond after his arrest, but bond was later revoked last year and Wagner was put back in prison after prosecutors say he violated his conditions by contacting one of the two alleged victims he is accused of battering through text messages.

Testimony from the bond hearing claimed there were more than two dozen messages exchanged between Wagner and the alleged victim.
