CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A former New Hampshire youth baseball coach convicted of sexual exploitation of a child and possessing child pornography has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Robert Joubert (JOO’-bert) of Manchester was found guilty in November. Court documents say the victims were under age 13 at the time of the abuse.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1gBjMum) Joubert was sentenced in federal court.

U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said the 60-year-old Joubert ran the Seacoast Baseball Academy in York, Maine, where the investigation began in March 2012. Police found numerous young men who said Joubert abused them.
