Wasn't even aware his trial had started, but he has entered a guilty plea...
WINNIPEG - Former junior hockey coach and convicted sex offender Graham James has pleaded guilty to sexual assaults involving two of his former players, including NHL star Theoren Fleury.
James entered the plea in a Winnipeg courtroom via video link from Montreal.
The disgraced coach was facing nine charges of sexual assault on three players, but only pleaded guilty to charges involving two.
James has been out on bail for almost a year and living in Montreal.
He has already served a 3 1/2-year prison sentence for abusing other former players he coached, including former NHLer Sheldon Kennedy.
The most recent charges came after Fleury published an autobiography in which he described the abuse he suffered.
Here's hoping he goes away for a long time. There's probably a deal that's been made here, but I really hope it wasn't too sweet.
