DALLAS (AP) — A former Texas parole officer has been sentenced to almost two years in federal prison for taking bribes from a man she supervised and not reporting his alleged financial violations.

A federal judge sentenced Nichelle Derricks in Dallas to 20 months in prison on Wednesday. The 37-year-old Cedar Hill woman had pleaded guilty to honest services wire fraud in January. She could have received up to 20 years in prison.

Court documents indicate Derricks was a Texas Department of Criminal Justice official when she had an improper relationship with a male parolee. Investigators say Derricks received cash, gifts, furniture, food and other valuables from the parolee.
