A former high school girls tennis coach was sentenced Thursday in Ramsey County District Court for sexually assaulting a student he coached at Visitation High School in Mendota Heights.
Daniel Erik Hubbard Wilson, 27, will serve a year in the county jail with 137 days credit for time already spent behind bars, plus 15 years of probation. If he follows the terms of his probation, his sentence of six additional years in prison will be stayed.
Wilson pleaded guilty in January to third-degree criminal sexual conduct for assaulting a girl who was 15 when the sexual contact first occurred. Wilson had served as the girl’s private coach.
The initial criminal complaint filed in the case charged him with first-degree criminal sexual conduct in addition to a third-degree count that said the sexual contact was consensual.
Wilson was also charged three times with violating a harassment restraining order in the case — twice in Ramsey County and once in Hennepin County.
As part of a plea deal, Wilson agreed to plead guilty in Hennepin County District Court to violating the restraining order when he showed up outside the girl’s therapy session in Minneapolis in November. All other cases and charges against him were dismissed.
One of the conditions of his probation is that he have no contact with the girl.
