61-year-old Bruce Giggy was sentenced Tuesday in Bartholomew Superior Court 1. Judge Jim Worton sentenced Giggy to six years and eight months on each count, ordering them to be served consecutively. That means each sentence is served separately. The earliest Giggy will be eligible for parole is 2028. Giggy was ordered to register as a sex offender and to have no contact with any of the victims in the original five counts.

Giggy originally faced five counts of child molesting, but two of those were dropped as part of his plea deal.

He was accused of molesting four children under the age of 14 at his home between 1999 and 2008. Giggy coached at Columbus North from 2005 through 2009 before coaching at Columbus Christian High School through 2016. He was arrested in July 2017.
