Scud’s dad in not guilty plea
TENNIS instructor Nikolaos “Nick” Philippoussis has pleaded not guilty to 14 counts of sexually assaulting two nineyear- old girls he was privately coaching and faces a 210- year sentence if found guilty. The 68- year- old Australian appeared in handcuffs at the San Diego Superior Court, where he was slapped with a massively increased bail of $ 9.2 million, up from $ 2.5 million. His lawyers did not oppose the bail increase and said Philippoussis would not be applying because he could not raise it anyway. Philippoussis’s partner, along with his son, Mark, the former tennis star, were in court but made no comment to media.
