Johnson baseball coach resigns after indecency charge
Tony Ray Wilson

Johnson High School’s former head baseball coach, who turned himself in on a public indecency charge Wednesday, will not be returning to work for Hall County schools.

Tony Ray Wilson, 47, of Buford, is accused in a Friday incident which took place in a high school classroom during a teacher workday. The last day for students was May 23.

According to reports, a female teacher informed school officials that Wilson had exposed himself to her. The school resource officer then began an investigation.

Wilson turned himself in to Hall County authorities Wednesday afternoon. Bond was set at $1,500.

Wilson had been a teacher with the school system since August 2007, and was a physical education teacher as well as coach. Prior to joining Hall schools, Wilson was the head coach of the Stephens County varsity baseball team in Toccoa.

He was placed on administrative leave, but sent a letter of resignation from his teaching and coaching positions on Wednesday. The date coincides with the last day of Wilson’s contract for the 2012-2013 school year with Hall County schools.

The school board will act on the letter at the upcoming June 3 meeting.

The school district is fully cooperating with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office. The case remains under investigation.
