(LEX 18/WPSD) — A former western Kentucky high school cheer coach charged with evidence tampering was back in court on Tuesday, according to WPSD.

David Wade, 43, has been accused of sending a sexually explicit video to a group of cheerleaders, then trying to cover it up.

Wad admitted to sending the video, but said it was an accident.

The Paducah Public School superintendent said they are actively working with police.

Wade waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Tuesday.

Wade has been scheduled to be back in court on October 17.
