CANTON -- A former Jackson High School coach pleaded not guilty to charges in court this morning.

Scott Studer, 46, is charged with eight counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. His lawyer entered the not guilty plea for Studer who was arraigned via video.

He is accused of videotaping students in the boys locker room and showers with a hidden camera. Police say the number of victims in the case now numbers 74 and says the alleged videotaping began as early as 2005.

Studer was the freshman basketball coach and spent 27 years at Jackson High. He resigned his position the day of his arrest in November.

He faces more than 60 years in prison if convicted on all charges.

A pre-trial is scheduled in the case for December 13.
