New information about a suspended New Bern High School teacher and girls basketball coach who is charged with assaulting two female students.
Philip Beeson, 53 years-old of Bridgeton, came to New Bern after resigning from East Forsyth High School in Winston-Salem.
East Forsyth school officials say Beeson was suspended prior to resigning after an investigation revealed he knew about another teacher who had videotaped himself having sex with two female students and showed the tape to others.
School officials said Beeson was not criminally charged in connection with that case.
Beeson's next court appearance is scheduled for May 16.
