ATHENS, Wis. (WEAU) -- A former Athens basketball coach is sentenced to prison time Friday.

Online court records show Rory McKellips, 55, will spend the next 10 years in prison, and the next 5 years on extended supervision.

Online court records show in July, a jury found McKellips not guilty of repeated sexual assault of a child and exposing himself, but convicted him of using a computer to facilitate a sex crime and also a misdemeanor count of obstructing an officer.
