A former Illinois basketball coach who faces allegations of sexual misconduct with one of his players appeared in court for the first time Thursday.

WTWO News first brought you this story over a week ago.

Barry Wolfe, a Martinsville, Illinois girls basketball coach, faces charges of performing sexual acts with a juvenile. One teenage who played for Wolfe’s team made claims that Wolfe engaged in sexual conduct with her between February 2014 and September 2015.

The State’s Attorney has stated that until his next court date, Wolfe will be prohibited from having any contact with those who played basketball for him during his time as coach.

In addition, if he’s released, he will be ordered to home confinement.

Officials also say they are investigating to see if there are more victims involved.

Wolfe’s bond is set at $500,000.
