A former Western Heights coach on trial for rape takes the stand in his own defense.

The bench trial resumed Thursday against Tyrone Nash. Nash is accused of having sex with a Western Heights student.

The allegations were first brought to light when the student came forward claiming she had a sexual relationship with Nash from 2010 to 2011. On Wednesday, the student testified they had sex more than 10 times.
