Assault Charges Against Cambridge Coach Dismissed - WISC TV

UPDATED: 2:01 pm CDT July 10, 2006

JEFFERSON, Wis. -- Sexual assault charges against a former Cambridge high school teacher and coach were dismissed on Monday.

Joseph Parish was facing a jury trial on Tuesday on accusations he assaulted an 18-year-old female student last year.

Jefferson County Judge John Ullsvik dismissed the charges at the request of prosecutors.

In recent weeks, Parish's defense had introduced motions asking Ullsvik to subpoena the alleged victim's mental health and counseling records at Meriter Hospital.

The defense has maintained Parish was elsewhere during the window of time in which the woman claimed the assault was made.

Three felony charges against Parish carried a maximum 56 years in prison upon conviction.
