DULUTH, Minn. (AP) – A former Duluth youth basketball coach has been convicted of sexually assaulting two preteen sisters.

A jury in St. Louis County found Wendell Greene guilty of having sexual contact with the girls, ages 8 and 10 at the time of the assaults.

The 37-year-old former Marine and Minnesota Air National Guard member was convicted of three of four counts of criminal sexual conduct Wednesday.

The Duluth News Tribune says Greene coached for a variety of basketball programs, including middle school girls in Duluth and Hermantown.

In a separate case Greene has been charged with having sex with a 14-year-old girl during the summer of 2010. That case is expected to be tried later this year.
