Judge denies bond for Jeffrey Crowder

 Jeffrey Tyler CrowderJeffrey Tyler Crowder Bulloch County Superior Court Judge William Woodrum denied a bond request for Jeffrey Tyler Crowder during a hearing Tuesday.   Crowder, an assistant coach at Statesboro High School, has been charged with sexual Misconduct with students.  There was concern Crowder would try to contact some of the victims.


  Testimony by Statesboro Police Detective Sgt. James Winskey revealed that Crowley admitted during the investigation that he had sex with at least two students at his home on several occasions.  He said they were investigating another coach at the school about sexual misconduct when they learned about Crowder.  


  Winskey said Crowder allegedly denied any wrong doing when he was confronted by then SHS Principal Marty Waters who said he learned about his actions by other faculty members.  Waters advised Crowder to “be careful”.


  By failing to report the allegations in a timely manner Waters was also arrested.  He eventually resigned after the Board of Education decided not to renew his contract. 


  Winskey testified seven female students said Crowder had inappropriately contacted them by various means and an eighth said before she had graduated she, too, had had sexual contact with Crowder.  Winskey said Crowder told investigators he may have a “problem” around attractive females.


  Judge Woodrum denied bond for Crowder whose case will go before the grand jury later this month on a charge of sexual assault by a person of authority.  More charges are expected to be filed against him.
