The most notorious coach in hockey history will be spending more time behind bars thanks to another conviction for sexual assault.

Graham James, who had already been serving time for previous crimes, will now have two more years tacked on to his sentence. The latest conviction stems from sexual assaults on a player back in 1990-91.

Former players Todd Holt and Sheldon Kennedy were at the courthouse to support the victim in this latest case; both were assaulted by James when they played for the WHL's Swift Current Broncos.
