INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - A former Indianapolis high school assistant swimming coach has been sentenced to two years of probation for child seduction.

WISH-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OnzsBG) that Matthew Carrington was sentenced Friday. Under a plea agreement, he won’t be allowed to coach or teach or attend any swimming events or mentoring activities involving any child under the age of 18.

Carrington coached at North Central High School from late 2012 until his dismissal last Feb. 24. Carrington was 36 at the time.

Court documents say Carrington sent sexual messages to a 16-year-old girl. The victim told police that she had been speaking with Carrington via text messages, but thought of him as a father figure.
