TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- A Kansas judge has denied making offensive sexual comments to female prosecutors and says that some remarks were taken out of context.

The Wichita Eagle report that Sedgwick County District Judge Timothy Henderson told a disciplinary panel Friday he will ask to be reassigned from his current position as presiding judge of the juvenile court system.

Four female prosecutors testified Thursday about the remarks before a panel of judges and lawyers in Topeka.

Henderson also is accused of sending a biased email about a Wichita attorney. A third complaint alleges he asked a Wichita school board member to inquire for his wife about a teaching position.

The complaints are being handled by the Commission on Judicial Qualifications, which helps the Kansas Supreme Court in judicial disciplinary matters.
