Abusing Coach Sentenced

On Friday, Christopher Stefanik, the former coach who pleaded guilty in March to 10 counts related to child sexual abuse, was sentenced to 23 years in prison. (The offenses were second-degree child rape, second-degree child molestation, sexual exploitation of a minor, and possessing child pornography.) King County Superior Court Judge Nicole MacInnes sentenced him to the maximum time allowed because of the victims' testimony at the sentencing hearing. The prosecution -- including deputy prosecutor Scott O'Toole (also a Trial Ad instructor) -- had recommended 17 1/2 years. Ex-coach gets 23 years for sex abuse, Seattle Times, June 3, 2006.
