Court won't stop gym coach's new trial

The Illinois Supreme Court will not intervene in the case of former gymnastics coach Michael Cardamone, whose conviction on child molestation charges was overturned on appeal. That clears the way for Cardamone to get a new trial.In 2005, Cardamone was found guilty of fondling seven girls at a gym owned by his family. Back in March, that conviction was overturned by an appellate court.

Cardamone is expected to ask to be released on bond while he awaits his new trial.
