HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Guntersville High School soccer coach charged with sexual abuse and human trafficking waived a preliminary hearing Thursday morning.

The case against David Barrow will now go before a grand jury. 

Police arrested Barrow in May after investigators said he brought two girls under the age of 12 to a home, took nude pictures of them, and touched them inappropriately.

As for the human trafficking charge, investigators said he paid to have the children taken to a home in Huntsville to engage the girls in sexual servitude.

In May, the school board voted to suspend Barrow pending the outcome of the investigation.
