A Shawnee County Corrections officer is jailed on a charge of aggravated criminal sodomy with a child under the age of 14.

Records show 40-year-old Aaron Kalka was booked in last Thursday. A docket hearing on the criminal charge is set for April 10th in Shawnee County District Court.

Deputy Corrections Director Timothy Phelps said Kalka was a corrections specialist in the department. He is on leave without pay pending an administrative investigation. Phelps said the jail's investigation is separate from the criminal case.

Phelps said Kalka has been unable to make bail. Phelps said Kalka will be held at another Kansas jail facility while the case proceeds since he is known in the Shawnee County Jail complex.
