Parents in Kansas kids bound case plead no contest

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Two Illinois parents accused of binding and blindfolding two of their children in a Walmart parking lot in Kansas have pleaded no contest to charges.

Adolfo Gomez of Northlake, Ill., pleaded no contest Friday to two counts of felony child abuse and three misdemeanor counts of child endangerment. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that his wife, Deborah Gomez, pleaded no contest to three counts of child endangerment on Dec. 14.

Sentencing for Adolfo Gomez is scheduled for Feb. 8. Prosecutors are recommending a 30-month sentence for Adolfo Gomez and a year of probation for Deborah Gomez.

Both parents were arrested June 13 when Lawrence police found two children, ages 5 and 7, tied up near their vehicle in the Walmart parking lot. Three other children were in the car unrestrained.
