RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A former Horlick High School volunteer wrestling coach has pleaded not guilty for sexual assault charges. 

Benigno Velasquez appeared for his arraignment hearing Thursday morning, May 27. He's charged with 27 counts of sexual assault of a child and possession of child porn.
