A former Gurnee Police officer convicted of abusing two girls at a slumber party has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Jay Simon was sentenced after reaching a plea deal with the Lake County state's attorney Wednesday.

Simon was convicted last September of aggravated criminal sexual assault for the 2006 incident. He also pleaded guilty to an unlawful restraint charge for a domestic incident in March of 2007.

Simon must register as a sex offender.
