A trial date has been set for a former Southeast High School assistant coach who entered a not guilty plea last week to a charge of third degree sexual abuse of a minor by a person in authority .
36 year old Michael Booth will appear for trial April 16th and 17th in Goshen County District Court. A pre-trial hearing has been scheduled March 19th where Goshen County District Court Judge Pat Korrell will talk to the attorneys involved .
Court records say Booth is accused in an incident that occurred this past May in the victim’s vehicle at the Pavilion parking lot on the County Fairgrounds.
The documents say Booth and the victim confirmed the sex took place during separate interviews with a Sheriff’s investigator. The victim told the investigator she felt pressured to have sex and Booth told her at a sports camp a month later that he was having marital problems at the time.
