ALBERT LEA, Minn. – A former coach of the Albert Lea High School girls hockey team is pleading guilty to a charge stemming from an altercation with his wife.
Paul Willett, 43, entered an Alford plea to disorderly conduct. An Alford plea is an option for defendants to maintain their innocence while admitting there is enough evidence for them to be convicted.
Back in November, as KIMT News 3 reported, Willett was charged with domestic assault – strangulation. Court records show he admitted to getting into an argument with his wife, but denied that it turned physical.
