Former basketball coach has bond revoked, back in jail

HICKORY, NC (WBTV) -

A former Hickory High School basketball coach, accused of sex crimes involving students, is back behind bars tonight.

Shawn Johnson had been free on bond but Tuesday a judge ruled he violated the terms by going to a rec-center in Mooresville in June, where teenagers were present.

His original bond was revoked and a new one put in place. He's now being held on a $250,000 bond.

If Johnson makes bond, he'll be under house arrest except for court proceedings.

Jury selection has begun for his trial which could last a month.
