HASTINGS (WKZO) -- Former Detroit Tigers outfielder Chad Curtis is heading to prison for inappropriately touching teenage girls, but blamed the victims in a nearly hour-long statement at sentencing.

Curtis was sentenced to between seven and 15 years in prison in Barry County Circuit Court after being convicted in August.  He had been volunteering at Lakewood High School as a strength coach when the crimes occurred.

Curtis had a reputation as a highly religious man during his Major League Baseball career.
