Former Booneville coach Kenny Paul Geno faces between 10 years and life in prison after guilty plea

Former Booneville assistant basketball coach Kenny Paul Geno decided to forgo an indictment and plead guilty to three felony child sex charges in federal court.

Geno confessed to his actions in a court document, and his sentencing, scheduled for early next year, may result in a prison term ranging from 10 years to life.

Initially indicted on charges of sexual exploitation of a child and attempting to entice a minor to send explicit photos, Kenny Paul Geno, a 28-year-old from Booneville, faced accusations of soliciting explicit images from two underage victims.

Additionally, he was charged with recording a consensual sexual encounter with a third underage girl in April 2022.
