Former major league outfielder Chad Curtis was sentenced Thursday to seven to 15 years in prison for inappropriately touching teenage girls. He received the maximum penalty allowed by Michigan law.

Curtis's sentencing came after a jury this summer found the 44-year-old two-time World Series champion guilty of six counts of criminal sexual conduct.

Curtis was found guilty of touching the girls last year when he was a volunteer weight-room strength trainer at a Detroit-area high school. A 16-year-old girl accused him of touching and kissing her breasts. Two 15-year-old girls also said Curtis inappropriately touched their buttocks.

Between 1992 and 2001, Curtis played 10 MLB seasons, including terms with the Angels, Tigers, Dodgers, Indians, Yankees -- with whom he won two World Series rings -- and Rangers.
