A Mercer County teacher and coach is scheduled to go on trial in March for allegations that he sexually assaulted a student in another state.

Court officials in Judith Basin County, Montana tell 21 News that the trial for Richard Adsit, Jr. is expected to last five days.

Adsit pleaded not guilty earlier to four charges of sexual assault and two charges of sexual intercourse without consent.

Adsit, a health and physical education teacher has been suspended by the Mercer Area School District.

The district website says Adsit teaches fitness; physical education 8, physical education grades 9-12; and health 9; as well as a golf and baseball coach in the Mercer schools.

The alleged incidents happened in 2012 while Adsit was working at Geyser High School in Montana, according to court documents.

The alleged victim was a student and player at the time of the alleged crimes, and under the age of 16, according to the report. Adsit was 36 years old at the time.

Adsit was arrested in May after the Judith Basin County Sheriff filed charges in the court system.

At that time NBC affiliate KTVH reported that court documents state the following:

"During the time at issue, Defendant repeatedly ignored the Victim's statements and actions indicating lack of consent. In late March or early April 2012… Defendant explicitly told the Victim she could 'never ever, ever, ever, EVER tell anybody what was going on.' This statement from a teacher and coach to a student and player resulted in the Victim being unable to effectively consent to sexual contact due to the imbalance of power."

According to the sheriff's office, Adsit worked at the following schools in Montana: Reed Point High School, Geyser High School, Savage High School, and Sidney High School.

The state of Montana Office of Public Instruction website shows Adsit was licensed to teach in that state from 2004 to 2014.

Court documents say Adsit is prohibited from leaving the state of Pennsylvania, except to attend court hearings in Montana and must not contact victims or witnesses in the case.

Records from the Pennsylvania Department of Education show that Adsit was first licensed to teach health and physical education in 1999.

He had emergency teaching permits to act as a day-to-day substitute teacher in Pennsylvania from 2000 to 2001 and received a library science substitute permit in 2015.
