Sex offender to serve time in prison after he was caught playing Pokemon Go with a child

GREENFIELD — A registered sex offender caught playing Pokemon Go with a 16-year-old boy on the courthouse lawn, just a few feet from the county probation office, will serve about three years in prison, a judge decided Wednesday.

Randy Zuick, 42, of Greenfield, was sentenced to serve his time in an Indiana Department of Correction facility, admitting he violated the terms of a deal he accepted from prosecutors about three months ago when he pleaded guilty in a child molest case.

Last month, Zuick was rearrested after probation officers recognized him outside their office, playing the popular smartphone game near a boy on the courthouse lawn. In April, Zuick had pleaded guilty to a Level 4 felony charge of child molesting for fondling a child younger than 14 and was sentenced to sex-offender probation, which prohibited him from spending time with children, court records show.
