Robert Oliva guilty of abuse
BOSTON -- A former New York City high school basketball coach has pleaded guilty in Boston to child sex abuse dating to the 1970s.
Robert Oliva was sentenced Monday to five years' probation after pleading guilty to two counts of child rape and one count of disseminating pornography to a minor.
Oliva's accuser read a statement calling Oliva "a disgusting human being" who used his power to treat him as a sex toy.
Oliva won 549 games and five city championships in 27 seasons at Christ the King Regional High School, where he coached several future NBA players. He resigned in 2009.
