FALMOUTH, Ky. - A Northern Kentucky volleyball coach accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a middle schooler pleaded not guilty on all new charges Wednesday, and was ordered not to have any unsupervised contact with minors.
Cassandra Elfers, who served as a part-time volleyball coach with Pendleton County Schools, was arraigned Wednesday morning on two new counts of first degree sex abuse and distribution of obscene matter.
The new charges stem from the same alleged victim as the first charges brought against her.
In January, the 21-year-old was charged with one count of sex abuse in the first degree for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old boy.
Elfers pleaded not guilty to those charges and her attorney, Eric Deters, waived her pre-trial conference.
Deters says during the time the alleged incident happened, Elfers was serving as the assistant coach of a basketball team the boy played on. Elfers' ex-boyfriend was the head coach of the team.
He says Elfers did not have sex with a middle school student.
When speaking on the first charge, Deters said "my guess is that this charge would stem out of touching."
