Ken Wilburn

Sport: Basketball
Year(s): 1998
Charge: 20 counts of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated criminal sexual contact for molesting six girls between the ages of 11 and 15

Outcome: Wilburn pleaded guilty to two counts of official misconduct after he admitted touching the breasts of a 12-year-old and a 15-year-old who were not his students (as if it would have made a difference if they were?). He was sentenced to eight years in prison and was barred from ever teaching again.
