WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A former Kansas high school football coach avoided jail time by agreeing to plead guilty to a misdemeanor count of patronizing a prostitute.

Former Garden Plain football coach and teacher Todd Puetz was given a 30-day suspended sentence after his plea. The plea agreement was approved on Friday.

He was one of seven men arrested in October 2011 who police say used electronic media to try to meet underage girls for sex.

He was acquitted of two charges in April but the jury could not reach a verdict on a third count of electronic solicitation of a child. A retrial on that charge was scheduled to begin June 24 before the plea agreement was reached.
