SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A high school track coach has pleaded not guilty to charges that he tried to lure a 13-year-old girl over the Internet into having sex.
A trial date was set March 29 for Greydon Smith, who faces up to 30 years in prison and a 250-thousand dollar fine if convicted.
The "girl" was actually an undercover police officer, whom the 45-year-old Smith allegedly arranged to meet January 8th in a Layton park.
The coach at Salt Lake City's East High School entered his plea yesterday.
