SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The father of a 23-year-old convicted in the shooting of a Sioux City police officer has pleaded guilty to helping his son evade arrest.

Levon Dean Sr. of Sioux City pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiracy to defraud the United States by obstruction or interfering with governmental functions. The Sioux City Journal (https://bit.ly/1CNpfK0 ) reports the plea agreement has been sealed.

Officials say a sentencing date for 55-year-old Dean will be set once a presentence investigation is complete.

A judge sentenced his son, Jamal Dean, to 25 years in prison after he pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the shooting of police officer Kevin McCormick during a 2013 traffic stop. He was sentenced last week to life in prison on charges related to the armed robbery of two people in Sioux City.
