LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ A former Lawrence youth ministry
coordinator has pleaded no contest to indecent liberties with a
child and is expected to spend 30 days in jail.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports 41-year-old Christopher Cormack entered his plea Monday. He initially had been charged with aggravated indecent liberties accusing him of having sexual relations with a 15-year-old starting in 1999, when he was 28.
Cormack was convicted by a jury in 2008, but a Kansas Court of
Appeals panel awarded him a new trial in March because jury
instructions weren't specific enough.
A plea agreement calls for Cormack to get probation if he has no
past criminal history, to be served after a 30-day jail term.
Cormack also will be required to register as a sex offender for
