PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania gymnastics coach charged with sexually abusing a teenage student is now charged with molesting two young girls 15 years ago.

State police filed the new charges against 45-year-old Keith Callen when he showed up for a preliminary hearing Wednesday on the original charges. A preliminary hearing in both cases is now set for July 20.

The original charges involved a girl Callen allegedly molested from age 14 to 17 while her private coach.

The new charges, including aggravated indecent assault, corruption of minors and child endangerment stem from allegations by sisters, now in their early 20s, that Callen molested them in 2001, when they were 6 or 7.

Callen’s attorney Jack Haller says, “It is what it is. I can’t say any more than that.”
