ENTERPRISE, ALA. - Former Chiefland High School football coach Guy Bubba Nall, 39, was indicted on eight counts of incest on Oct. 23, according to Dwight Holley, chief investigator for the District Attorney's Office in Enterprise, Ala.

The suspected sex offender is scheduled for arraignment on the Alabama charges between Nov. 26 and 28, and he will be scheduled for trial at that time. Holley anticipates trial to be in early 2008.

The crime of incest in Alabama carries a sentence of between one and 10 years, Holley said.

The former coach faces a potential life prison sentence if he is convicted of other sex crimes he allegedly committed in Florida.

Nall was arrested in October in Levy County on other charges related to illegal sexual activity.

In Levy County Nall was arrested for one count of sexual battery on a child younger than 12 years old, and three counts of engaging in sexual activity with a child older than 12.

LCSO Inv. Lauree Allen made the arrests in Levy County based on allegations of sex crimes between 2000 and 2006 in Levy County, according to records.

Before coming to Levy County, Nall was a teacher and assistant football coach at Trenton High School from 1998 to 2003, according to records.

Nall was hired at CHS on Aug. 5, 2003 as a dropout prevention teacher and assistant football coach. He left on June 1, 2005, according to Levy County School Board records.

After his service in Levy County, he went to Enterprise, Ala., and is now an Enterprise High School driver education teacher and football coach. He was placed on paid administrative leave until his trial, according to Enterprise City Schools Superintendent Jim Reese.

The crime of sexual battery of a child younger than 12 is a capital felony in Florida, punishable by life in prison in Florida.

On the three counts where Nall is accused of having sex with a child older than 12, each count is punishable by a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison, according to Florida Statutes.

He remains free on bond. Nall was scheduled for arraignment on the Levy County sex crimes on Nov. 7, according to felony circuit court records checked on Nov. 5.
