WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A former high school football coach will be retried on a charge of electronic solicitation of a child arising from a sting operation.

The retrial for former Garden Plain coach Todd Puetz is scheduled for June 24.

A Sedgwick County jury on Monday could not reach a verdict on the solicitation charge. The jury acquitted Puetz of two other charges. He was one of seven men arrested in October 2011 in the operation aimed at men soliciting sex from minors.

District Attorney Marc Bennett said Tuesday the court automatically placed the Puetz case back on the jury trial calendar, which it does whenever a case ends in a mistrial.

He faces up to five years in prison if convicted of the soliciting charge.
