BLOUNTVILLE — A former Vance Middle School teacher accused of storing almost 600 images of child pornography on his home computers is now set for a May 20, 2013, trial.

The trial date for Randall Scott McCoy, 48, of 2004 Eastwood Ave., Kingsport, was set Thursday in Sullivan County Circuit Judge Jerry Beck’s courtroom.

McCoy is charged with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor in connection with 595 alleged images of child pornography police say were stored on four computers seized from his home on June 30, 2010. Earlier this month, Beck denied a motion to suppress evidence seized from McCoy’s home.
