LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Sentencing will take place later this month for a suburban Chicago man who was arrested after two of his children were found bound and blindfolded in a Walmart parking lot in eastern Kansas.
Adolfo Gomez and his wife, Deborah Gomez, of Northlake, Ill., have been in custody in Douglas County since they were arrested last June 13 in Lawrence. Police found two of their children, ages 5 and 7, bound by their hands and feet in the store parking lot.
Adolfo Gomez pleaded no contest to two counts of felony child abuse and three misdemeanor counts of child endangerment. The Douglas County prosecutor's office said Wednesday that he's scheduled for sentencing March 22.
Deborah Gomez was sentenced earlier to one year of probation after pleading no contest to three counts of child endangerment.
