Update: A Coraopolis man and wresting coach for West Allegheny High School has been charged by Allegheny County Police with sexual assault of a minor.
William James Morosetti, 28, was charged Wednesday with six counts of institutional sexual assault of a minor, according to court records. He faces a preliminary hearing Jan. 29 in Robinson.
Morosetti is also charged with furnishing alcohol to minors. The charges stem from an April 2012 incident.
