A former assistant wrestling coach at Genoa High School has been acquitted of sexual battery on a 17 year old student.
Army reservist Joseph Bergman says his life was turned upside down by the accusation.
T he 29 year old was arrested and charged with one count of sexual battery in May 2012.
B ergman's attorney and investigators were able to prove he didn't have sex with the teen. But, Bergman admitted the text messages he exchanged with the 17 year old student crossed a professional line.
"it's embarrassing, it's embarrassing for me because I should have known better."
B ergman is no longer employed as a coach at Genoa High School. He says his primary goal is to restore his name and get back to a normal life.
