The former Athens High School coach,
who went to trial on sexual assault allegations, is now facing new
Prosecutors say Rory McKellips, 56,
lied on the stand during his own trial. People may find some of the
details of this story disturbing.
Just three weeks ago, McKellips was
found not guilty of sexual assault, but he was found guilty of two
other charges, including using a computer to facilitate a sex crime.
Now, prosecutors say McKellips and his
wife lied on the stand, and they're both facing perjury charges.
This all dates back to some very
intimate details of McKellips, that took place at trial last month.
The teen girl who accused McKellips of sexual assault testified he
did not groom his private area, but both Rory McKellips and his wife
told the jury he did.
After the trial, police interviewed
people who worked with McKellips at a mill. Those co-workers told
officials they believed McKellips lied on the stand because they say
they showered with him multiple times at work. Prosecutors say that
was an important detail in the trial.
"In a case where credibility was a
huge part of the case, especially in regard to the victim, the state
is putting forth that this is a material fact," said Marathon
County Deputy District Attorney Theresa Wetzsteon.
In court today, McKellips told the
judge he did not lie on the stand. We tried to reach out to McKellips
attorney, but our calls were not returned.
McKellips' bond was revoked after the
trial and he is still in the Marathon County Jail. His wife did not
appear in court today on her charges, and the judge ordered for an
arrest warrant to be issued.
