A former youth center worker at Fort Leavenworth has been sentenced to prison for the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl.

Nicholas Clark, 24, was sentenced in Leavenworth County District Court to seven years and seven months in prison.

Last month, a jury found Clark guilty of aggravated indecent liberties with a child and aggravated solicitation of a child.

The crimes occurred when Clark worked at the Youth Services Center at Fort Leavenworth.

Prosecutors requested a life sentence for Clark. His attorney requested probation.
