Sentencing for former girls amateur basketball coach Barry Wolfe is scheduled for today.

Wolfe pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal sexual assault while in a supervisory position over the victim. Wolfe also pleaded guilty to a count of criminal sexual assault and a count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim between 13 and 18 years old.

Attorneys for prosecution and defense agreed that the sentences on the four charges will run consecutively, not concurrently. Two of the charges are Class 1 felonies, meaning up to 15 years in prison on each count; two of the counts are Class 2 felonies, meaning up to five years on each count.

Wolfe's bond was revoked, and he has remained in jail until sentencing.

Wolfe faced 55 counts of either aggravated criminal sexual abuse or criminal sexual assault. The counts stem from alleged actions that occurred while Wolfe was an AAU basketball coach in the area in recent years. There were two alleged victims in the case.
