A former Calgary ringette coach said Friday she will be forever sorry for what happened with one of her young players.

Kelsea Hepburn, 24, was convicted of sexual interference and invitation to sexual touching in February.

The conviction followed testimony about incidents involving a 13-year-old girl over a three month period in 2011.

At the sentencing hearing on Friday, the victim told the court that her life is out of control, she suffers post-traumatic stress, is on numerous medications and can't be in a normal relationship.

When she was given a chance to speak, Hepburn burst into tears saying she made the wrong decision and vowed to never let the law or herself down again.

The crown prosecutor is asking for an 18 to 24 month sentence with two years on probation, a ban from being in a position of trust over anyone under the age of 16 and a no-contact order for the victim and her family.

Hepburn's defence lawyer argued her client is not a pedophile and asked for a sentence of 45 to 90 days in jail, to be served intermittently in British Columbia while Hepburn attends university.

The judge has reserved his decision until next week.
