A former northeast Kansas police officer has pleaded no contest to sexual exploitation of a minor and eavesdropping with a camcorder.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports that Brian Vincent entered the pleas to one count of each charge Wednesday in Doniphan County District Court. He'll be sentenced next month.
Vincent was a sergeant and 10-year veteran of the Elwood Police Department before he was fired in June of last year. He also worked part-time for the Wathena Police Department.
Prosecutors said Vincent had videos of underage girls nude or undressing. The girls were filmed without their knowledge.
Vincent is also a former member of the Riverside USD 114 school board. He had been re-elected last year but resigned after the charges were filed.
