HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A former Kansas high school basketball coach could face up to life in prison after pleading guilty to child sex crimes.
KAKE-TV reports 21-year-old Patrick Kent Blevins on Tuesday waived his right to a trial and pleaded guilty to indecent liberties with a child. Prosecutors say he fondled six boys.
Blevins was formerly an assistant girls basketball coach at Trinity Catholic High School in Hutchinson, but was not a teacher.
He was arrested in March and charged with four counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and one count of aggravated criminal sodomy.
Blevins waived his right to appeal his sentence as part of the plea deal.
