A former Wichita police officer pleaded guilty today and admitted he knew about illegal poker games.

46-year-old Bruce Mackey of Goddard, Kan. pleaded guilty to one count of misprision of a felony.

During an illegal poker game in February 2014, Mackey told the organizers of the game that one of the gamblers was a Wichita police officer working undercover.
