Updated: June 19, 2013 3:02PM



LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A Northlake man has been sentenced to 30 months in prison for binding and blindfolding two of his children in a Wal-Mart parking lot in eastern Kansas.

A spokeswoman for the Douglas County, Kan., district attorney’s office says 53-year-old Adolfo Gomez also was ordered during Wednesday’s sentencing hearing to serve 24 months of post-release supervision after his prison term ends.

Gomez and his wife, Deborah Gomez, also of Northlake, were arrested Jun 13, 2012, 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.

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