INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A former Indianapolis private high school boys’ basketball coach has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for trying to entice a 15-year-old student to have sex with him.

A federal judge ordered the prison term Friday for former Indianapolis Park Tudor School coach Kyle Cox. Cox pleaded guilty in May to a charge of coercion and enticement.

Prosecutors sought the 14-year sentence under the plea agreement, while defense attorneys asked for a 10-year term.

Authorities say Cox was 31 when he sent sexually explicit online messages, texts and photos to the female student and tried to arrange for her to visit his home for sexual activity.

Cox told the judge he was sorry for causing pain and has enormous shame for his actions.
