6 years in prison for former HS tennis coach accused of having sex with student

The former high school tennis coach who was accused of having a sexual relationship with a teenage student, then contacting her despite being repeatedly told not to, will spend six years in prison after violating the terms of his probation, the Pioneer Press reports.

Daniel Erik Hubbard Wilson, 28, was sentenced in April to a year in jail, after pleading guilty to one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct.

The charges stem from Wilson’s sexual relationship with a teenage girl, whom he coached at the private school in Mendota Heights. She was 15 when the relationship started, according to the charges.

His sentence included 15 years on probation with specific terms: one being he have no contact with the girl. By violating any of those terms he faced six years in prison.

In May, Wilson was accused of trying to send the victim messages over Twitter by paying other inmates for their phone time – a violation of the terms of his probation.

KSTP reports Wilson was in court Thursday, where a judge sent him to the state's St. Cloud prison facility.

The judge called Wilson's behavior "constant and intentional," as he tried to circumvent the court's orders, the Pioneer Press reports.

It is not the first time Wilson was accused of having trouble staying within the guidelines set out for him.

As part of the initial charges, Wilson was ordered to have no contact with the victim. But he was arrested and charged three times in the weeks that followed for violating that order.
