BRADENTON, Fla. - In new developments in the Rod Frazier case, Circuit Judge Doug Henderson ruled to separate the 10 counts filed against the Former Manatee High School football coach into 8 different trials.

Frazier is accused of having inappropriate contact with several former Manatee County students and teachers.  According to the ruling, the 7 counts of battery and 3 counts of interference with the attendance of a pupil in school were unfairly jointed because they allegedly happened over a 6 year time period and to multiple victims.  Those trial dates have not been set yet.  

Coming up on ABC 7 news at 6pm, we get reaction from one of the victims parents.
