CHARLESTON -- A former girls youth basketball program coach who in late June pleaded guilty to four counts of criminal sexual assault received the maximum sentence, 60 years in prison, Friday afternoon.

Barry S. Wolfe, 54, of Martinsville faced charges alleging sex acts with two of his former players from 2013 to 2015, when both were ages 17 and younger. He was the founder of an area AAU basketball program for girls ages 17 and younger in Illinois and Indiana, as previously reported.

Multiple former players have testified in court as part of Wolfe's sentencing hearing. With state truth-in-sentencing laws, Wolfe will have to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence.
