Hennepin County Government Center

The Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis is the site for many court hearings.

A former Eden Prairie skating coach has been sentenced to 24 years in prison on two counts of criminal sexual conduct for sexually assaulting a student he coached, according Chuck Laszewski, the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office media coordinator.

Hennepin County District Judge Peter Cahill sentenced Thomas Joseph Incantalupo, 48, to 24 years in prison on Sept. 27 after Incantalupo pleaded guilty on June 18 to one count each of first-degree and third-degree criminal conduct, court documents show. Incantalupo was originally charged with nine counts of criminal sexual conduct in January 2018, according to a news release from the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office.

The criminal complaint says 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.
