Ron Barnard pleads not guilty at court appearance

Ron Barnard, the former Marshall County football coach, appeared in court Monday morning.

He pleaded not guilty in connection to a second alleged inappropriate relationship with a student.

The Commonwealth attorney asked if Barnard’s charges could be combined into one case.

Both sides will learn more about that at next week’s pretrial hearing.

Judge Dennis Foust will recuse himself from the case, citing a personal relationship with Barnard.
