Sexual assault charges against Pa. coach dropped

CORAOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) — Sexual assault charges against a western Pennsylvania high school math teacher and assistant wrestling coach have been dropped.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette  reports Friday that the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office says one alleged victim changed her story, and that substantially affected the case.

William Morosetti, 29, of Coraopolis had been charged with having sex and furnishing alcohol to a female student before she graduated last year. Morosetti remains suspended without pay from his teaching and coaching jobs.

West Allegheny School District spokeswoman Karen Ruhl wrote in an email that Morosetti is still employed, pending the outcome of labor arbitration.

Defense attorney Michael Foglia could not immediately be reached for comment.
