LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Louisville softball coach accused of distributing images of children engaged in sexual activities has pleaded not guilty.

News outlets report that Matthew Graves, the head varsity softball coach and a physical education teacher at Kentucky Country Day School, entered the plea Tuesday in Jefferson District Court, a day after he was arrested and charged with one count of distribution of child pornography.

In an arrest citation, Louisville Metro Police say Graves exchanged pictures of juveniles engaged in sexual activities using the smartphone messaging app Kik multiple times in December 2014.

Graves would face between one and five years in prison if he is found guilty.

Graves’ attorney Steve Romines says his client is a Marine Corps veteran who does not have any prior criminal history.
