Former youth basketball coach Billy Rigsby appears in court


BLOUNT COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — A former Blount County youth basketball coach plead guilty to two charges relating to solicitation of a child for sex.

Billy Rigsby, 37, entered a blind plea, which means he will plead guilty without a set sentence in hopes that the prosecution will recommend a lighter sentence.

According to court documents, Rigsby used an electronic device in May of last year with the intent of luring at 15-year-old girl to have sex with him. He then traveled to Gardendale to attempt to meet her in person.

Rigsby will be sentenced on October 23.
