A judge sentences a former Chicago basketball coach to life in prison for sexually abusing students. Thirty-five-year-old Alonso Bracey was the basketball coach and church choir director at Barton Elementary School on 76th and Wolcott. He was convicted in February of sexually abusing five Barton students back in 2006.

Police say the abuse happened at Bracey's home on Laflin Street.

The children ranged in age from 11 to 13 years old.
