MINNEAPOLIS - Police say a former high school tennis coach who is in prison for sex with a teenager asked fellow inmates to help him contact the victim, reports CBS Minnesota.

Daniel Wilson is serving a year in the county jail for sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl he coached at Visitation High School, in Mendota Heights, Minn.

Now he's also accused of paying other inmates to access their jail phone time, then allegedly using that access to ask others to post messages on Twitter for the girl.

Before being sentenced, Wilson was caught three times trying to contact her. A hearing Thursday will determine if Wilson is at it yet again.

If he's found to have broken the rules, a judge can replace the 15 years of probation he's supposed to face after his one-year behind bars with an additional six-year prison sentence.

The terms of Wilson's probation barred him from contacting the victim.
