A plea deal will result in a one-year jail sentence for a former high school tennis coach at Visitation High School.

The Star Tribune reports Daniel Erik Hubbard Wilson, 27, will serve a year in the Ramsey County jail with 137 days credit for time served.

The Pioneer Press reports Wilson was sentenced on one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct; he pleaded guilty to the charge in January when a first-degree charge against him was dismissed.

The charges stem from Wilson's sexual relationship with a teenage girl, whom he coached at the private school in Mendota Heights. Wilson, of St. Paul, was placed on leave after school officials learned of the allegations.

The girl was 15 when the sexual contact first occurred. The criminal complaint said Wilson had a sexual relationship with the girl from November 2013 to September 2014, when the girl's father confronted her and the teen confessed that she and Hubbard-Wilson had a physical relationship.

He will be on probation for 15 years and must follow the terms for his sentence of six additional years in prison to be stayed.

One of the conditions of his probation is that he have no contact with the girl, and stay away from locations she frequents. Wilson must also register as a predatory offender, attend a sex-offender program and have no contact with children.

Wilson was also charged three times with violating a restraining order, twice in Ramsey County and once in Hennepin County. As part of the plea agreement, Wilson agreed to plead guilty in Hennepin County to violating the restraining order when he showed up outside the girl’s therapy session. He will appear in Hennepin County on April 28.
