|Frank Selas, known as Mr. Wonder on a Monroe children’s television show in the 1970s, accepted a plea deal in Rapides Parish, where he’ll serve five years for sexually assaulting a child during a camping trip in 1979. Selas gets two years credited for time served and will not have to register as a sex offender since the sex offender registry didn’t exist when the crime was committed. Legal analyst Tim Meche says this is exactly how a plea agreement is supposed to work.More|
