A Martinsville, Illinois basketball coach has been accused of sexual acts with a juvenile.

Barry Wolfe, 53, of Martinsville was arrested by Mattoon Police on Thursday evening. Wolfe is one of the developers of the Central Illinois Storm Elite AAU Basketball team.

Wolfe faces eight counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and five counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault with minors from the age of 13 to 17.

According to an arrest warrant served by Mattoon Police, Wolfe engaged in oral sex and other acts with a juvenile female while he served as a coach for the team, the Herald and Review reported.

While the offenses were committed between Feb. 2014 and Sept. 2015, police say the investigation is still ongoing and will span multiple jurisdictions. Currently, there is only one alleged victim, but the police are expecting more people to come forward.

Wolfe will first appear in court on Monday, Oct. 30 and is being held on a $500,000 bond in Coles County Jail.
