Gibson sentenced to 60 years for rape of juvenile


A former coach found guilty of raping a high school athlete has been sentenced to more than 60 years in prison.

Zachary Gibson, 32, was transported from jail Thursday to the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Joel Kuhlman.

A jury in April found Gibson guilty of three counts of rape among other sexually related crimes.

Gibson said he was innocent of the charges and plans to appeal the sentence.
