POWELL, Wyo. (AP) - A former Powell police officer has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a woman while on duty in 2011.

The Powell Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ikFbNj ) that Kirk Chapman entered the plea on Monday in Park County District Court to one felony count of third-degree sexual assault.

District Court Judge Steven Cranfill accepted a plea deal that sentenced Chapman to four years in prison.

However, the sentence will be served in conjunction with a three-and-a-half to seven-year prison sentence he’s already serving for an unrelated sex crime in Wisconsin.

Chapman, 42, also must pay $245 to the district court, $865 for counseling the woman received after the assault and about $5,200 to cover the cost of transporting him from prison in Wisconsin back to Park County.

Chapman declined to say anything in court.
