The Halifax County Sheriff's Office said Monday it has added an additional charge against a former basketball coach at Northwest Halifax High School.

Erick Tyson Williams, 28, was already charged with three counts of indecent liberties with student. Deputies said as a result of their ongoing investigation, Williams was charged Monday morning with disseminating obscene material to a minor under age of 16. Investigators said he sent an inappropriate photo to a minor.

Williams was first arrested Friday on the indecent liberties charges. Investigators say he met the students allegedly involved while he was a coach at the school in Littleton.

Williams next court date was scheduled for May 2.
