HASTINGS, Mich.—Former major league outfielder Chad Curtis will face a key court hearing in two weeks on charges he touched two female students at a Michigan high school where he was in line to become football coach.

Curtis is charged with five counts of criminal sexual conduct. He appeared Wednesday in Barry County District Court for a preliminary hearing.

A judge set aside June 22 as the date for the probable cause hearing that will determine whether the 43-year-old defendant is ordered to stand trial.

Defense lawyer David Dodge Sr. says Curtis denies any criminal wrongdoing.

Between 1992 and 2001, Curtis played for the then-California Angels, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers. He won two World Series rings with the Yankees.
