A VICTORIAN basketball coach who had sex with a teenage girl will spend nine months behind bars.

Jamie Conway, 27, pleaded guilty to five counts of sexually penetrating a child under 16 and one of an indecent act with a child under 16.

The Victorian County Court heard Conway was coach and president of his suburban basketball association when he began a three-month sexual relationship with the girl, 15.

In sentencing, Judge Irene Lawson said although Conway did not coerce the girl, his crimes were grossly inappropriate.

“I’m satisfied you did understand what you did was wrong and your culpability was high,” she said.

The court heard Conway was immature and lacked insight into his behaviour, believing the girl was a peer capable of agreeing to a sexual relationship.

Judge Lawson said there was a low chance Conway would re-offend, as he had since undergone counselling and now knew what he did was wrong.

Conway, of Melton, was jailed for three years, to serve nine months immediately.

The remainder of his term was suspended for three years.
