The former Herscher High School wrestling coach who was convicted for sexually abusing female statisticians during a 2015 Plano wrestling tournament has been released from jail.
According to the VINE inmate service, 31 year-old David Murphy was released from the Kendall County Jail on Wednesday after 148 days served.
In February, Kendall County Judge Timothy McCann sentenced Murphy to 180 days in the jail.
Here was part of Murphy's statement to the court at his sentencing hearing, who offered apologies and said he had sought treatment for alcoholism.
Murphy was accused of buying alcohol for Herscher High School wrestlers and statisticians, and then improperly touching female statisticians and threatening male wrestlers on December 11, 2015 while staying at a Yorkville motel during the Reaper Wrestling Classic in Plano.
Attorney Frank Lipuma, who represented Murphy, told WSPY in February that Murphy's actions at the wrestling tournament can be attributed to Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder, and that the PTSD triggered something in Murphy on December 11th of 2015.
Murphy served with the U.S. Marine Corps in Iraq.
David Murphy was additionally placed on 30 months probation at his sentencing. He was fined $5,000, and is still required to perform 200 hours of community service for guilty pleas on charges of Criminal Sexual Abuse, Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse, and four counts of Aggravated Battery. All are felonies.
