Ex-St. Helena Coach Charged In Sex Assault

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) - A former St. Helena High School volleyball and wrestling coach has been charged with four felony counts of child sexual assault.

Authorities say Herschel Sandler is accused of molesting two girls in the late 1990s, during his four-year tenure as varsity volleyball coach.

A criminal complaint filed this week in Napa County Superior Court says the allegations by two former students were corroborated in part by Sandler's own admissions.

Sandler made a court appearance yesterday but did not enter a plea.
