A New Mexico high school coach has been acquitted of sexually assaulting students, but he may not be off the hook. 

Antonio Regalado was arrested in 2017 after a 17-year-old volleyball player told police he had touched her inappropriately while he was her coach at Dexter High. 

This week, a jury found Regalado not guilty of those charges. However, Regalado was also charged with touching three other students, whose cases were not included in this trial. 

Prosecutors are working to get those cases moved through the system so they can put him on trial again.
