CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A former St. Edward High School wrestling coach, who also served as a Cleveland firefighter, faced a judge for sentencing on Thursday afternoon.

The Cuyahoga County judge presiding over Daniel Gonsor’s case handed down a prison sentence of between five and seven years.

The 32-year-old pleaded guilty in mid-June to endangering children, two counts gross sexual imposition, and corrupting another with drugs. He was initially indicted on at least 20 charges for the crimes that occurred between June 2015 and July 2019 in Lakewood.

Gonsor was suspended without pay from the Cleveland Fire Department, effective February 2020, at the onset of the investigation.

In addition to the prison sentence, Gosnor will be placed on probation for five years and he will be required to register as a Tier 1 sex offender.
