FAYETTEVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - A former Little League Baseball coach in West Virginia has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to sexual abuse charges.

Local news outlets report that 26-year-old John Hunter Krise was sentenced Monday to at least 24 years in prison on charges including soliciting a minor via computer and sexual abuse by a person in position of trust.

Krise was arrested in June 2015 in Fayetteville following an investigation by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office. He pleaded guilty in April after law enforcement seized several electronic devices containing child pornography.

Krise will be required to undergo 25 years of intense sex offender supervision upon his release from prison.
