MARTINSVILLE, Ill. (WTHI) - We have new details about a case involving sexual abuse charges.

Barry Wolfe, of Martinsville, Illinois is currently in the Coles County Jail.

He faces multiple counts of sexual abuse and assault against a juvenile.

Wolfe is affiliated with an amateur girls basketball program in Illinois.

On Monday in court, a judge changed one of the charges from a Class 2 to a Class 1 felony.

That's an increase in severity.

The State's Attorney's Office says a typographical error happened when his office was entering the charges.

The change is essentially a correction.

That change means Wolfe's overall sentence could be longer if he's found guilty.

Wolfe will be in court on Thursday.
