Martinsville coaches get probation


Two former Martinsville coaches will serve probation but avoid jail time as part of plea deals finalized in court Wednesday. The men were charged in a child seduction case involving separate relationships with the same 17-year-old student. Under the agreement, Tim Wolf, 66, and Jeff McGown, 38, will register as sex offenders and serve nine years of probation. Both have lost their teaching licenses. Wolf is a former teacher and basketball coach at Martinsville High School. McGown taught second grade and served as tennis coach.
