Coach pleads guilty.png

Mark Kosloski, a former coach for North Lakes Academy, was sentenced on Monday, Feb. 14 to four years in prison after pleading guilty in September to two felony counts of criminal sexual conduct. Based on plea negotiations, the prosecution offered a maximum 48 months in prison, with the two offenses running concurrently. Chisago County judge Krista Martin sentenced Kosloski to serve the full four years in prison with parole eligibility after 32 months, denying Kosloski’s request for a less than the maximum 48 months. 

Kosloski must provide a DNA sample and register in the predatory offender database after his release. He was credited for serving four days in prison at his sentencing.

Kosloski, 48, of Wyoming, was first charged on March 1, 2021, and plead guilty on September 10, 2021 to two separate felony counts of criminal sexual conduct which occurred between September and December of 2017, and another in August of 2018. The maximum sentence if he had not plead guilty was 15 years for each count, and a $30,000 fine.

Kosloski was the assistant volleyball coach for NLA from 2017 to 2018, and was also the boys basketball coach from 2015 to early 2021, when he resigned. He was not otherwise employed with NLA.
