Bail set for Lincoln High coach accused of sex assault

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – A judge has set bail at $150,000 for a Lincoln High School girls basketball coach and staffer accused of sexually assaulting a student in a classroom last week.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that bail was set Friday for 33-year-old  Marcus Perry, who has been paid administrative leave since Tuesday and was arrested Thursday at his home on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault of a student.

Police say the 17-year-old student told school officials and officers that Perry touched her genitals in an in-school suspension room on Dec. 7. Officials say in a written statement that the incident did not involve a member of the basketball team.

It was not clear Saturday whether Perry yet had an attorney.
