Former L-P coach starts his prison sentence at Stateville

Posted by wlpo on July 23, 2014

Matt Fletcher has officially started serving his prison sentence.

The 31-year-old former head wrestling coach and greeter at L-P High pled guilty Friday to aggravated criminal sexual abuse and child pornography. He arrived at Stateville Correctional Center Tuesday near Joliet.

Last November and December, Fletcher admits to sending sexual texts back and forth to 17-year old girls at L-P. He took it a step further and had sexual contact with at least one of the students.

Fletcher was given five years in prison on the sex abuse charge and over two months probation for the child pornography charge. Two other charges were dropped as part of his plea deal.

He’s likely to serve just over two years of his sentence because he’s eligible for day-for-day credit.
