Former Maple Leaf pleads guilty to sexting teen

TORONTO - Former Toronto Maple Leaf and Portland Pirates assistant coach Mike Minard was sentenced to two months in jail after he pleaded no contest to sexual misconduct Wednesday.

Minard began an online relationship with a 13-year-old girl that he met on Twitter after a game involving the AHL club last season.

The girl first encountered Minard last November after she tweeted about not being able to take photos of the Pirates game because Minard was in the way, according to the court report.
