Judge Reduces Sentence for Pa High School Coach

A judge has refused to reconsider the nine-year minimum sentence imposed on a former eastern Pennsylvania wrestling coach in a drug-related parole violation.
 
But Northampton County Judge Leonard Zito on Wednesday reduced 32-year-old Brad Washburn's maximum term from 25 to 18 years.

  Washburn had been released from Northampton County prison in December, but Lehigh County police said he was found sleeping in a parking lot in May with drugs.
 
Authorities earlier said the former Bangor Area High School coach smoked marijuana and drank with students, charges that stemmed from a probe into the 2009 drug overdose death of a fellow teacher at his apartment.
 
Defense attorney Glenn Goodge, who sought a two to five-year sentence on Wednesday, said he would talk with his client about a possible appeal.
