SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A former Sioux Falls fire chief who admitted possessing child pornography has agreed to surrender his nursing license.

The Argus Leader reports 59-year-old Jim Sideras agreed to waive a disciplinary hearing by the South Dakota Board of Nursing, and the board voted 6-0 this month to accept the surrender of his license.

It means Sideras will no longer be able to work as a nurse in South Dakota, and likely in other states. He has a master’s degree in nursing from South Dakota State University.

Sideras last November pleaded guilty to possessing child porn in a deal with prosecutors. He faces up to 10 years in prison when he’s sentenced Feb. 28.
