Last week Bulloch County Superior Court Judge William Woodrum granted bond to 25 year old Jeffrey Tyler Crowder if he agreed to certain conditions. Wooddrum told Crowder he must post a $30,000 cash or property bond, live with his mother pending future court proceedings, do not return to Bulloch County except to attend court sessions, not break any laws, have no contact with any female under the age of 18 unless under adult supervision, don't drink alcohol or take only non-prescription drugs except under the care of a doctor, do not participate in any teaching or coaching activities and avoid contact with victims listed in the case.
The primary charge against him is sexual assault by a person of authority. Other charges may be forthcoming.
Police were investigating a separate case involving another coach at Statesboro High, 26 year old Luke Edward Parks, when they learned of Crowder. Parks was arrested in April for having sexual contact with another female student. He is expected to be indicted for sexual assault and felony sexual exploitation of children when the Bulloch County Grand Jury convenes in August.
During the course of the two investigations former SHS principal Marty Waters was arrested and charged with failure to report sexual abuse in a timely manner.
