A former Eden Prairie skating coach has pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal sexual conduct for sexually assaulting a student he coached, according to a news release from the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.

Thomas Joseph Incantalupo, 48, pleaded guilty on June 18 after being charged with nine counts of criminal sexual conduct in January 2018, the release says.

He pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, the release says. He also admitted to aggravating factors, which allows prosecutors to seek the 30 year statutory maximum sentence. Incantalupo also agreed that his sentence would be no less than 12 years in prison, the release says.

The charging documents said Incantalupo was a coach at the Eden Prairie Figure Skating Club. He began sexually abusing one of his students in 2015, when she was 14, the release says, and continued until she was 16, taking her to an Eden Prairie hotel for the abuse. He had all of his coaching privileges revoked once the group learned of his arrest, according to a Jan. 11 statement released by the skating club.

Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 27 at 9 a.m., the release says.
