JAY, Okla. (AP) - A former Jay High School basketball coach accused of raping and sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl has entered a guilty plea and will serve nearly 13 years in prison.

The Grand Lake News (https://bit.ly/22oNUTG ) reports that 38-year-old Cory Lyndon Henton entered the guilty plea Thursday after negotiations with the state. Henton received a 45-year sentence with all but 15 suspended to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

Delaware County District Court Judge Robert Haney sentenced Henton on 16 counts of lewd molestation, rape by instrumentation, second-degree rape and other charges.

Henton will serve 85 percent of the 15 years, totaling 12 years and nine months in prison. He’s also required to pay a victim compensation assessment of $1,000 and abide by probation and sex offender rules upon release.
