Not-guilty plea in Spokane teacher sex case

SPOKANE -- A man accused of having sex with a student when he was a teacher at Spokane's Shadle Park High School pleaded not guilty Wednesday to sexual misconduct charges.
Police said Ryan M. Murphy used his position as an English teacher to coax a girl into a relationship beginning in 2009 when she was 15.
The Spokesman-Review reported that another student complained to school officials in February 2012 about the relationship. Murphy was placed on leave and resigned in August.
