BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

The case of a Bluffton High School wrestling coach and teacher accused of slapping a female student on the backside will head to jury trial.

John Hollman, 45, was charged in May with assault and battery after a female student said he walked into her classroom and slapped her on the backside while students were watching a movie.

The student complained of pain and told police the action was unwanted.

Hollman's attorney requested a jury trial during proceedings Tuesday morning.

No trial date was set.
