Ex-coach denies sexual assault charge
“Our client denies all charges,” Beloit attorney Jeffrey Livingston said after Friday’s arraignment.
The case was continued until March 23 for a status conference. McKinley waived his right to a preliminary hearing Feb. 1.
The criminal complaint alleges McKinley repeatedly had sex with a 15-year-old girl between Dec. 1, 2010, and Sept. 25, 2011. The girl was a player on the junior varsity team McKinley coached at Williams Bay High School.
McKinley faces a maximum penalty of 165 years in prison and a $600,000 fine. He is free on a $10,000 cash bond.
