EL DORADO, Kan. (AP)-- A Butler County judge is expected to decide if a former Augusta police officer convicted of a sex crime will be subject to lifetime post-release supervision.

The Wichita Eagle reports that 45-year-old Jerry Dale Ballinger was ordered to 59 days of house arrest, 60 months' probation and sex offender treatment when he was sentenced April 7 on one count of attempted aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

The judge is expected to rule Monday on whether Ballinger will also have to submit to post-release supervision for the rest of his life.

Ballinger was a longtime Augusta police department employee.

Kansas law requires certain sex offenders be supervised in the community for the remainder of their lives after serving the incarceration portion of their sentences.
