Disgraced hockey coach Graham James gets 2 years in jail

Updated: Tue Mar. 20 2012 11:01:41



A former coach characterized as the "most hated man in hockey" has

been sentenced to two years in prison for sexually abusing two of his

players.



Graham James was asked to stand in the prisoner box of a Winnipeg

courtroom as Justice Catherine Carlson delivered her decision on

Tuesday.



"There is no sentence this court can impose which the victims and

indeed the public will find satisfactory," Judge Carlson told the packed

courtroom.



James pleaded guilty in December to repeatedly assaulting former NHL

player Theo Fleury and Fleury's cousin Todd Holt in the 1980s and 1990s

when they played for him in the Western Hockey League.



Carlson ordered that James have no contact with either Fleury or Holt.







Charges involving a third player, Greg Gilhooly, have been stayed as part of a plea deal with the Crown.
