Gallatin High Assistant Football Coach Charged With Statutory Rape

By Tiffany Johnson. CREATED Aug 14, 2014

GALLATIN, Tenn. – An assistant football coach at Gallatin High School has been charged with two counts of aggravated statutory rape.

Gallatin Police arrested 28-year-old Keith Duggin on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old former Gallatin High student had told her friends about her relationship with the coach. Police said it started earlier this year, "culminating in a physical relationship this summer” at Duggin’s apartment in Gallatin.

Police said they learned about the alleged incident from a teacher at the school who reported it to the school resource officer.

Duggin was booked into the Sumner County Jail, and later released on $10,000 bond.
