To say this news should have come sooner is an understatement. Via the CBC:
Former junior hockey coach and convicted sex offender Graham James has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting former NHL star Theoren Fleury and another man.
James entered the guilty pleas in a Winnipeg courtroom on Wednesday afternoon. He and his lawyer appeared in court via teleconference from Montreal, where James currently lives.
James will be sentenced in Winnipeg on Feb. 22, 2012, the CBC’s Marisa Dragani reported from the courtroom.
The latest case involves nine sex-related charges against three players he used to coach in the minor hockey ranks, including Fleury.
