Case against former Tampa Prep coach on hold while Supreme Court considers appeal

TAMPA — The criminal case against a former Tampa Prep coach is on hold indefinitely as the Florida Supreme Court considers his appeal.

Last year, an appeals court reversed a Hillsborough judge's decision to dismiss felony charges against Kimberly Brabson III, who was accused of secretly videotaping dozens of schoolgirls as they tried on bathing suits in his office.

The 3rd District Court of Appeal reinstated 19 felony counts against Brabson of promotion of a sexual performance by a child younger than 18. The 2nd DCA recused itself from the case.

The former coach has appealed the 3rd DCA's decision.

On Wednesday, Hillsborough Circuit Judge Wayne Timmerman issued a stay in the case, which will remain in effect until the state Supreme Court issues a ruling.

  5. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
