WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas judge says he won't challenge a state panel's recommendation that he be disciplined for violating judicial conduct rules.

The Commission on Judicial Qualifications found in July that Sedgwick County District Judge Timothy Henderson made inappropriate and offensive comments in the presence of female attorneys.

The state panel helps the Kansas Supreme Court in judicial disciplinary matters. It is recommending Henderson's punishment be a public reprimand by the state's highest court.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1lvOiLB ) Henderson's attorney says the judge isn't admitting to the state panel's findings. He says the judge wants to get back to doing his job.

Henderson was reassigned from the juvenile court to the civil court department in May.
