Judge sentences former Nixa Police Dept. officer accused of sex crimes involving a minor
NIXA, Mo. (KY3) - A judge sentenced a former Nixa Police Department officer after he entered an Alford plea to sex crime charges involving a minor.
In the Alford plea, Cody Don Scott admitted the state had enough evidence against him, despite maintaining his innocence. A judge gave him a seven-year suspended sentence. He must complete a 120-day treatment program.

Detectives say the girl admitted Scott told her to deny any allegation if they got caught.
Once charged, the Nixa Police Department fired Scott.
