LAWRENCE, Kansas (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.

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.
