    TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A former Tulsa police officer has been sentenced to serve 30 years in prison in a sexual exploitation case involving neighborhood children.

    The Tulsa World reports that 71-year-old Noel McFadden was sentenced Wednesday after pleading guilty to one of three federal counts that include sexual exploitation, enticement and possession of child pornography.

    McFadden still faces seven state-level counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12. The state and federal cases involve the same two sisters, who were 8 and 5 at the time of the incidents.

    Prosecutors allege McFadden made the sisters touch him inappropriately in exchange for gifts in April 2017.

    McFadden has also been ordered to pay more than $18,300 in restitution.

    His defense attorney says the Tulsa Police retiree understands he must be held accountable and accepts his sentence.
