WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A former Cherokee County prosecutor who
extorted money and favors from a Galena adult club is sentenced to
a year and a day in prison.

Michael Goodrich, of Baxter Springs, asked a federal judge before sentencing Monday that he be allowed to stay out of prison so he could provide for his family. He said he was sorry for how his actions affected his family and community.

Federal sentencing guidelines called for a sentence of between 24 and 30 months in prison. Prosecutors had asked for a prison term of at least 12 months for the extortion charge.

In addition to the prison term, Goodrich also must serve two years probation after his release.
