Man convicted of stealing a DA's identity

Ron Nichols picked the wrong person’s credit card to steal: a top-ranking prosecutor for the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.

Nichols used a Visa belonging to Chief Assistant District Attorney Sally Salguero to go shopping online last March.

The 43-year-old, who lives in the 2000 block of Green Acres, ended up charged with 12 counts of identity theft and 10 counts of computer fraud.

Court records say Nichols used Salguero’s charge card for most the month of March.

After pleading guilty, Nichols faces sentencing next week before Judge Eric Comer.

Nichols was arrested on April Fool’s Day.
