Former ice skating coach convicted of sexually abusing students

A 30-year-old former ice skating coach has been convicted of sexually abusing two of his underage students, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said Wednesday.

Donald James Vincent was convicted of felonies including forcible lewd acts upon a child and oral copulation/sexual penetration with a child under 10, district attorney's officials said in a statement.

Vincent was a coach at Paramount Iceland, and abused the students at his homes in Downey and Hacienda Heights between 2007 and 2011, according to prosecutors.

He is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 21 at the Pomona courthouse. He could receive multiple life sentences in state prison, prosecutors said.
