BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A former high school wrestling coach has pleaded guilty to raping two underage girls two years ago.

Local media report that 27-year-old Justin Farrara of Hamburg pleaded guilty Tuesday in Erie County Court to two counts of rape stemming from separate incidents in April and August 2012.

Farrara was an assistant wrestling coach for the school district in the town of Eden, south of Buffalo.

Prosecutors say they investigated the statutory rape case after school officials discovered Farrara had inappropriate relationships from conversations posted on social media earlier this year.

Farrara left his position as a coach in 201. He faces up to eight years in prison when sentenced on Oct. 2.
