Volunteer coach whose house was scene of party in Ohio football rape case pleads no contest

A volunteer football coach whose house was the scene of a party that preceded the rape of a girl by two high school football players has pleaded no contest to two charges.

The Ohio attorney general's office says Matt Belardine (BELL'-ahr-deen) entered no contest pleas Tuesday in Jefferson County court to one count of making a false statement and one count of enabling underage drinking.

Charges of obstructing official business and contributing to the delinquency of a child were dismissed.

Special Judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove sentenced Belardine to 10 days in jail, one year of supervision and 40 hours of community service. She also fined him $1,000.

A message was left with Belardine's attorney seeking comment.
