Gorman, 51, has been in jail on a $1 million bond since March.

The former Life University coach was arrested March 3 on allegations he sexually assaulted two boys in East Stroudsburg, Pa., where Gorman worked as a youth wrestling coach.

Gorman’s attorney argued at the May 12 hearing that the bail for each case was excessive, according to online news outlet lehighvalleylive.com. Prosecutors said that bail be denied in part because of newly discovered information regarding Gorman’s lengthy abusive history. 

Police say Gorman abused the two boys, now in their 20s, between 2006 and 2011. He allegedly flew them to his Marietta home and abused them there.

He faces 513 offenses, ranging from rape of a child to statutory sexual assault to corruption of a minor.
