An Eden Prairie skating coach has been sentenced to 24 years in prison for the sexual assault of an underage student.

Thomas Incantalupo, 48, of St. Louis Park, was sentenced to 288 months in prison after previously pleading guilty to 1st and 3rd degree criminal sexual conduct.

The victim of his sexual abuse was one of his pupils, whom he sexually assaulted while she was between 14 and 16 years old.

As part of his plea, Incantalupo admitted he took his pupil to a hotel on two separate occasions when she was 15 and 16 and sexually abused her.

The abuse started in August 2015, when she was 14, during a training trip to Connecticut, and continued for the next two years as they went on skating trips inside and outside the U.S.

Incantalupo coached at the Eden Prairie Figure Skating Club, which suspended him following his arrest. He was then banned from coaching by the U.S. Center for SafeSport.

In a statement on Friday, the Eden Prairie Police Chief Greg Weber said the conviction of Incantalupo was the result of "countless hours" of investigation by his detectives.

"We are committed to ensuring all victims feel empowered to report crimes of sexual abuse, as we strive to bring justice to those responsible for committing them," he said.

"As the sentencing trial concludes, we think first of the victim, her family and friends. It is our hope that by bringing justice in this case we have opened the door for their healing process to begin. We also hope today’s sentencing helps bring closure to those in our community affected by this tragedy."
