MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A former West Tennessee track coach has been sentenced to 90 days for statutory rape of a 14-year-old girl who was a member of the track team.
Shelby County Criminal Court Judge Bobby Carter sentenced 29-year-old Arlen C. Wilburn on Tuesday. Wilburn pleaded guilty Sept. 30 to aggravated statutory rape.
Wilburn's defense attorney declined through email to comment on the case.
Wilburn had been a track coach at Sherwood Middle School in Memphis.
