Former major-league player Chad Curtis has been sentenced for seven to 15 years in prison for sexually assaulting multiple teenage girls (CBS New York).

While serving as a substitute teacher and weight-room coach at Lakewood (Mich.) High School, Curtis was accused of fondling and kissing the breasts of a 16-year-old girl and also inappropriately touching the buttocks of two 15-year-old girls. He was initially charged with six counts of sexual assault and then found guilty in Aug. 16.

Thursday, during his sentencing, Curtis maintained his innocence. From CBS New York:

[Curtis] told [Judge Amy] McDowell Thursday that the three victims lied. He described himself as a Christian servant and said he and one of the victims “could write a book together someday, and it could have a positive impact on a lot of people.”

Curtis, 44, spent parts of 10 major-league seasons with the Angels, Yankees, Rangers, Tigers, Dodgers and Indians.
