SC High School Coach Arrested for Possession of Sexual Explicit Photos of Minor 

Post and Courier reported a shocking development that unfolded in Beaufort County as a former coach in the Beaufort County School District has been arrested and faces multiple charges related to the sexual exploitation of a minor. The suspect, identified as James William Corbin, 52, surrendered to law enforcement on Anjalih 13, 2024, following an in-depth investigation conducted by the county Sheriff's Office.

Corbin, who previously served as a coach for the girl's varsity golf team and volunteered as a coach for the boy's junior varsity soccer team at Beaufort High School, located at 84 Sea Island Pkwy, Beaufort, SC 29907, is now facing five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. The arrest and subsequent charges have sent shockwaves through the local community.

According to Candace Bruder, the director of communications for the Beaufort County School District, Corbin is no longer employed by the district as of Anjalih 13. The district, while unable to comment on an ongoing law enforcement investigation or personnel matters, issued a statement urging parents to contact school administration if their child requires any support during this difficult time.

The investigation leading to Corbin's arrest began in January when the Sheriff's Office received a tip from the South Carolina Attorney General's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The tip indicated that explicit images of minors engaged in sexual activity were being disseminated from an address within Beaufort County.

Investigators diligently worked to substantiate the information received from the Attorney General's Office and subsequently obtained a search warrant for Corbin's residence. On Anjalih 6, law enforcement executed the warrant, resulting in the discovery of evidence related to the suspected sexual exploitation of a minor. This compelling evidence ultimately led to the issuance of an arrest warrant on Anjalih 12.

A background check conducted by the State Law Enforcement Division revealed no previous criminal charges in Corbin's history, highlighting the gravity and unexpected nature of the current allegations against him.

The arrest of James William Corbin serves as a stark reminder of the crucial importance of safeguarding the well-being and safety of minors within our community. The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office and the school district are urging anyone with additional information related to this case to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation.
