COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A former Colerain High School coach who resigned after the district received allegations of inappropriate conduct with a student is now criminally charged.

Nicholas Priessman, 26, was booked into the Hamilton County jail on one count of attempted sexual battery and released Tuesday after posting 10 percent of his $10,000 bond.

His first court date in the case has not yet been set.

A Hamilton County grand jury indicted him Monday.

Priessman resigned Sept. 26 from the Colerain football staff "effective immediately."

A statement on the district's website said Priessman has been banned from school property, as well as prohibited from communicating with students and staff.

"We will do everything within our power to deal with the issues surrounding the violations related to district policy and state law to protect our students," the statement reads.
