WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A former cheer coach from Wichita has been convicted of sex crimes involving four of his minor students.

Twenty-nine-year-old Timothy Wells-Lee was convicted Tuesday of 10 of 11 charges he faced. He'll be sentenced June 14.

Wells-Lee was accused of having sexual relationships with girls ranging from 12 to 14 years old while he was coaching them at Wichita cheer academies between 2006 and 2008. He was acquitted of one charge of fondling one of the girls.

Wells-Lee denied having any sexual contact with three of the girls. He admitted having a sexual relationship with the fourth girl but testified it didn't begin she was the legal age of 16.

He will be sentenced under Jessica's Law, which requires a sentence of life without possibility of parole for 25 years.
