McNeil football coach’s son and another student arrested

Posted

Two McNeil High School students were arrested last month on charges they illegally recorded video of another student in the bathroom and then posted the video on social media. A third student, a juvenile still unnamed by police, may also face charges. 

The two students arrested — 18-year-old Cory McMahan and 17-year-old Corbin Banda — were charged with invasive visual recording, a state jail felony punishable by up to two years imprisonment. Both were released after posting $25,000 bond. 

“The incident that occurred was a gross violation of privacy and behavior that will not be tolerated in Round Rock ISD,” said RRISD spokesperson Jenny LaCoste-Caputo in a written statement. 

According to court records, warrants were issued for Banda and McMahan, who is the son of the school’s head football coach and athletic coordinator, was issued on April 6 as a result of a police investigation that wound up with both students being indicted on March 29. 

Court documents show that the students allegedly recorded the unnamed victim in a bathroom stall and then posted the video to the social media network Snapchat. The incident reportedly took place in November. The victim, a senior, has since transferred to another RRISD school. McMahan and Banda spent 30 days in an alternative placement within the district but have since returned to McNeil.
