Two Martinsville coaches charged with child seduction were sentenced Wednesday to nine years probation.

Jeff McGown and Tim Wolf pleaded guilty to three counts of child seduction after being accused of inappropriate contact with the same teenage girl. As a part of the plea agreement, McGown and Wolf received three years on each charge for a total of nine years probation. They will not serve any jail time.

Both teachers must surrender their teaching licenses and are not allowed to have any contact with the victim.

McGown resigned from his position as a Martinsville elementary school teacher and high school tennis coach in May. Wolf, who was the Martinsville High School boys basketball coach, retired in February after the accusations were made.

Owen County Special Judge Frank Mardi issued the sentencing in a Morgan County Superior Court.
