PHOENIX — A former football coach and teacher at a charter high school in Mesa has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of sexual conduct with a 17-year-old girl who was one of his students.

Sheron Butler entered his plea in Maricopa County Superior Court on Tuesday. He'd previously maintained his innocence during his initial court appearance.
