A high school coach in Burlington is facing another sex charge involving a student.

On Thursday, 45-year-old Robert Alfonzo Clapp was charged with taking indecent liberties with a student.

Just last week, the part-time coach and trainer at Williams High School was arrested after a student reported being sexually assaulted.

He was charged with one count of statutory sex offense against a person who is 13, 14, or 15 and one count of sexual activity between school personnel and student.

Clapp was suspended by the Alamance-Burlington School System following the first charges. He has worked at the school since 2007.

Clapp was placed in the Alamance County Jail under a $150,000 bond. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
