BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (WMBD) — A former Bloomington orthopedic surgeon has accepted a plea deal in relation to a sexual assault case Tuesday.
According to the McLean County States Attorney’s Office, Shaun Kink pleaded guilty to one count of solicitation of a sexual act, a Class A misdemeanor.
In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped four other pending charges. The other charges included criminal sexual assault with force and aggravated criminal sexual assault of a handicapped person.

Kink has been sentenced to 120 days in jail and 18 months probation.
