The U.S. Attorney's Office says Brock Wedman, 50, pleaded guilty to one count of concealing a felony and in that plea, admitted to helping to organize and recruit players for illegal poker games.

"On Feb. 12, 2014, Wedman was present at a poker game held at 922 1/2 E. Douglas in Wichita. Wedman did not know it, but a man he invited to play was a Wichita Police Department officer working undercover to investigate organized gambling," U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister says. "When Wedman became suspicious, he found the undercover officer's car and took down the license plate and VIN numbers. Wedman gave the information to a friend who was a Wichita police officer and asked him to confirm the undercover officer's identity."

McAllister says Wedman's sentencing is set for Aug. 1 and "both parties have agreed to recommend Wedman serve a year on federal probation."
