Volleyball coach forced 13-year-old student in bathroom stall and kissed her, police say

A Jasper volleyball coach is facing a felony charge after a young teen reported she was accosted by the woman during a tournament in Trussville.

Dakoda Bhreann Mauldin, 29, is charged with a school employee engaging in a sex act with a student under the age of 19. She was booked into the Jefferson County at 12:37 p.m. Thursday and released at 1:04 p.m. after posting $15,000 bond.

Trussville police Sgt. Adam Filetti said the investigation began Sept. 30 when a 13-year-old girl reported to them that Mauldin assaulted her in the bathroom during a Sept. 19 volleyball tournament at Hewitt-Trussville High School.

Mauldin, according to the girl, pushed her into a bathroom stall and kissed her on the mouth. She also is alleged to have texted photos of herself to the girl and professed her love to her. Filetti said the victim is not from Trussville. Mauldin and the victim do know each other.

Filetti also said Mauldin asked the girl to delete the text messages between the two of them.

Mauldin at the time worked at a contract coach at Jasper High School but is no longer affiliated with the school system. Mauldin lives in Parrish.

The crime is a Class B felony.

“Since this is an on-going investigation, we are not a liberty to make comments,” said Jasper City Schools Superintendent Ann Jackson. “We are however, cooperating with law enforcement. Our main concern right now is with the wellbeing of our student athlete and her family.  Student safety is our number one priority.”

BLOOMINGDALE — RIVERVIEW, FL — Deputies are searching for a man who is accused by authorities of recording bathroom activity at a Lowe’s in Riverview, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said.

Law enforcement officials said at 5:45 p.m. on Sept. 29, the suspect went inside Lowe’s, 10425 Gibsonton Drive, and immediately walked toward the store’s restrooms.

A victim told the sheriff’s office that at 6:45 p.m. they saw the suspect reach under the bathroom stall with a cell phone to record the victim.

The victim tried to confront the suspect, but he left the store, according to authorities.

Surveillance footage shows the suspect driving away in a dark 2000-2006 Chevrolet Suburban.

House approves $2.2T COVID-19 relief bill as White House talks stall

House Democrats on Thursday approved a massive, $2.2 trillion package of coronavirus relief, lending political cover to party centrists in tough races while putting fresh pressure on Senate Republicans to move another round of emergency aid before the coming elections.

The vote arrived only after last-ditch negotiations between Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiTrump signs bill averting shutdown after brief funding lapse On The Money: ‘One more serious try’ on COVID relief yields progress but no deal | Trump tax bombshell shines light on IRS enforcement | Senate passes bill to avert shutdown hours before deadline ‘One more serious try’ on COVID-19 relief yields progress but no deal MORE (D-Calif.) and Treasury Secretary Steven MnuchinSteven Terner MnuchinAmerican Airlines to furlough 19,000 workers On The Money: ‘One more serious try’ on COVID relief yields progress but no deal | Trump tax bombshell shines light on IRS enforcement | Senate passes bill to avert shutdown hours before deadline ‘One more serious try’ on COVID-19 relief yields progress but no deal MORE on Thursday failed to yield a bipartisan agreement — and it sent a signal that the prospects for such a deal before Nov. 3 have dimmed considerably.

The bill was approved by a tally of 214 to 207, but to secure passage, Pelosi and her leadership team had to stave off a late revolt from a surprisingly large number of centrists who were furious that Pelosi had staged a vote on a bill with no chance of becoming law.

Man arrested for recording woman in Lakeway bathroom stall

LAKEWAY, Texas (KXAN) — A man was arrested Wednesday after being accused of recording a woman in a restroom at a Walgreens in Lakeway.

Police were told by the victim that while she was in one of the two stalls in the women’s restroom, she saw a hand with “African-American skin tone” holding a cellular phone under the stall’s adjoining wall, according to an affidavit. Police say she could tell the suspect was wearing black pants and camouflage shoes.

The woman said the phone was being held in a way that was consistent with being recorded and she could even see her own reflection, police say.

Police say they spoke with three Walgreens employees who said they saw a man matching the description leaving the restroom area, leaving the store and walking to a nearby Randall’s.

The police located the suspect, Shaquez Dayshawn Sims, 26, who initially said he was at the Walgreens, but left when people at the store accused him of something he didn’t do, according to the affidavit.

Police say Sims gave them consent to look at the pictures on his phone, which the arresting officer said significant evidence was found.

According to the arrest warrant, evidence can be quickly deleted from digital devices but can also be recovered through forensic extraction methods.

Sims is charged with invasive visual recording, a state jail felony.
