A former high school football and track coach convicted several years ago for making illegal drugs saw a petition denied in Lyon County District Court Tuesday.

52-year-old Dave Wasylk filed a 1507 motion contesting his sentence for aiding and abetting meth manufacture from a case dating back to 2013. Wasylk cited ineffective counsel during his court proceedings and related trial as the basis for his petition.

Judge Merlin Wheeler officially denied the petition during a hearing Tuesday afternoon. Wasylk is currently serving over 20 years in prison.

Before his conviction, Wasylk operated Emporia's Dugout Bar and Grill for several years. He also coached the Hartford football team and served as a physical education teacher, football coach and track coach at several schools, including Reading and Hartford.
