Franklin police say a youth wrestling coach accused of failing to stop hazing among his wrestlers has pleaded not guilty to charges of child endangerment and hazing. 

Prosecutors say 58-year-old Bart Freidenberg of Pickerington knew a 14-year-old boy was assaulted during the hazing last summer. Freidenberg has yet to comment. A pretrial conference is scheduled May 21.
