Hastings, Mich. — Former Tigers outfielder Chad Curtis has been sentenced to seven to 15 years in prison for inappropriately touching teenage girls.
Curtis was sentenced Thursday in a Barry County courtroom. A jury this past summer found the two-time World Series champion guilty of six counts of criminal sexual conduct.
Prosecutors say he touched the girls last year when he was a volunteer weight-room strength trainer at an area high school. A 16-year-old girl says he touched and kissed her breasts. Two 15-year-old girls say Curtis inappropriately touched their buttocks.
Between 1992 and 2001, Curtis played for the then-California Angels, Tigers, Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees and Texas Rangers. He won the two World Series rings with the Yankees.
The Tigers acquired Curtis from the Angels in 1995 for Tony Phillips. The Tigers traded Curtis to the Dodgers in 1996.
