Court proceedings are moving forward in the case of a former Willcox substitute teacher and assistant coach on charges that include luring minors for sexual exploitation.
The pretrial conference for Jermaine Courtney Waddy, 28, was set for Friday, July 6, after it was originally scheduled for Friday, June 15, said Deputy Cochise County Attorney Lori A. Zucco.
While Waddy’s trial by jury is still scheduled to begin Tuesday, July 24, “it is going to be continued,” Zucco told the Range News.
On Thursday, April 19, Waddy’s conditions of release were modified when his parents agreed to be third-party custodians, which allowed his bond to be reduced to $35,000. Court records indicate that Waddy was released Tuesday, April 24.
On Thursday, March 15, a Cochise County grand jury handed down a 10-count indictment against Waddy for luring minors for sexual exploitation, including sending “visual depictions” directly to a minor.
Waddy was a substitute teacher as well as an assistant football and track coach.
