Man Sentenced for Strip-Searching McDonald's Employee

By Associated Press | 

A Bullitt County man has been sentenced to five years in prison for strip-searching a McDonald's employee after receiving a call from a man posing as a police officer.

Walter Nix pleaded guilty last month to sexual abuse, sexual misconduct and unlawful imprisonment.

Nix's attorney, Kathleen Schmidt, said today the punishment was too harsh. Schmidt says her client has been remorseful and she will ask for shock probation. If granted, Nix would be released from prison.
