Ex-Athens coach to be sentenced Oct. 25.


WAUSAU (WAOW) – The former Athens girls basketball coach convicted of using a computer to facilitate a sex crime will be sentenced in October.

Last week, a jury found Rory McKellips of Mosinee guilty of that felony and one misdemeanor count of obstructing a police officer.

The jury acquitted McKellips, 56, of one felony count of repeated sexual assault of a child and one count of exposing his genitals.

According to Marathon County Circuit Court online records, McKellips will be sentenced Oct 25 at 1:15 p.m..

The maximum punishment for the computer conviction is 40 years in prison.

McKellips was charged in 2011 after a then-15-year-old member of his girls basketball team told authorities she had sexual contact with McKellips three times over several months at his home.

McKellips testified at his trial and denied the allegations.
