A former Wichita police officer pleaded guilty Wednesday for not reporting information about illegal poker games, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s office.
The release said Bruce Mackey of Goddard pleaded guilty to one count of misprision — or concealment — of a felony. Mackey, 46, admitted that while he was a police officer, he knew and did not report individuals who were conducting a gambling business, the release said.
Sentencing is set for Oct. 26. He faces a penalty of up to three years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.
