Former coach pleads guilty to sexually harassment

The former women's softball coach at Nyack College charged with sexually harassing his players has pleaded guilty in court.



Kurt Ludwigsen, 44, pleaded guilty to seven misdemeanor counts of forcible touching.



He still faces a civil lawsuit from three team members who say he also invited them to get life coaching from an adult film star.



Ludwigsen, a father of two, was fired in March and will serve three years of probation and will have to complete community service.
