Coach pleads not guilty in porn case

An American cross-country ski coach accused of voyeurism and making child porn stemming from a hidden video camera at a ski resort in Vernon, has pleaded not guilty to 10 charges.

Jason Paur appeared in provincial court via video link.

He has been in custody since December and was denied bail last week because he is considered a flight risk.

The teacher from a private school in Seattle was arrested after a video camera was discovered in the room of female students at Silver Star ski resort.

The charges against Paur include break and enter and making or publishing child pornography.

A date for a three-day trial is expected to be set next week.
