BUFFALO, N.Y. — A local attorney pleaded guilty to child endangerment charges.

Investigators say Nicholas Hicks, 55, subjected a female minor to sexual contact without her consent and showed her an explicit photo on his cell phone.

Hicks pleaded guilty Tuesday and will serve three years of probation, and a five-year order of protection was issued for the victim.
