A former Guntersville youth soccer coach was sentenced to 30 years in prison on Thursday after pleading guilty to human trafficking charges.

After sentencing David Jacob Barrow, 59, to prison, Madison County Circuit Judge Alison Austin ordered Madison County authorities to return Barrow to the Marshall County jail to face pending charges there. He was indicted last March in Marshall County on 25 counts of producing child porn, one count of possession of child porn and one count of aggravated criminal surveillance.

Barrow was first arrested in May 2014 at John Hunt Park in Huntsville, where his team had competed in a state soccer tournament. At the time of his arrest, he coached the Guntersville High School girls' soccer team.
