June sentencing for dad who bound kids

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A June sentencing date has been scheduled for a suburban Chicago man who was arrested after two of his children were found bound and blindfolded in a Wal-Mart parking lot in eastern Kansas.

Fifty-three-year-old Adolfo Gomez and his wife, Deborah Gomez, of Northlake, Ill., were arrested last June 13 in Lawrence. Police reported finding 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 felony child abuse and child endangerment. The Lawrence Journal-World  reports he’s scheduled to be sentenced June 19.  A plea agreement between prosecutors and Gomez’s previous attorney specified a 30-month prison sentence.

Deborah Gomez was sentenced earlier to one year of probation after pleading no contest to child endangerment.
