Sedgwick County Deputy Gets Probation

By  | 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A former Sedgwick County Jail deputy accused of trying to have sex with inmates has been sentenced to two years of probation.

The Wichita Eagle reports that David Kendall was sentenced Friday. He pleaded no contest in May to six counts of attempted unlawful sexual relations with inmates and one count of making a false information. The crimes under Kendall's plea agreement carry the presumption of probation.

The judge said Kendall would have to register as a sex offender and undergo a sex-offender evaluation, and that if it showed he needed treatment, he would have to get treatment.

The crimes under the plea agreement involved attempted consensual sex with six different inmates in April and June of 2012. Kendall resigned after the allegations were made against him.
