High school baseball coach faces 3 additional sexual battery charges

A baseball coach at a metro Atlanta high school faces three more sexual battery charges, authorities said Friday.

The Peachtree City Police Department received a complaint April 24 that McIntosh High School head baseball coach David Munoz, 43, possibly had “inappropriate physical contact with student athletes,” according to a post on the agency’s Facebook page. Munoz was arrested the same day.

He was initially charged with one federal sexual battery charge on April 25, but a police spokesman confirmed he now faces three additional misdemeanor battery charges. 

The additional charges are misdemeanors because the alleged victims were all age 16 or older, the spokesman said. The felony charge involved an alleged victim of 15 years old or younger. All of the charges involve different alleged victims. 

No other details were released about the allegations against Munoz, who has worked for Fayette County Public Schools since 2007 as a health and physical education teacher. He transferred from J.C. Booth Middle School to McIntosh High School in 2014, according to the district.
