(WICHITA, Kan.)—A Sedgwick County judge has sentenced a former Wichita police officer to a "hard 50" for sex crimes against children.
Gregory Nicks pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a child last month. In court Friday, a judge ordered the former officer and Wichita Wild player to serve two 25 year sentences consecutively, and two concurrently. If he is eligible for parole in 50 years, he will be a lifetime parolee, and will be forced to register as a sex offender.
A co-defendant, Luz Coronado, was sentenced to life in prison in April. She will be eligible for parole in 25 years.
