WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ The FBI is investigating allegations of misconduct at the Sedgwick County Jail.

An FBI spokeswoman confirmed the investigation Wednesday, the day after a jail deputy was arrested after two inmates alleged they had been raped.

Sheriff Robert Hinshaw announced Tuesday that the 21-year-old detention deputy was arrested on suspicion of several offenses, including aggravated criminal sodomy and mistreatment of confined persons.

Hinshaw tells the Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/LlJUdQ ) that he welcomes the separate FBI investigation and would cooperate completely.

Hinshaw said sheriff's detectives will present results of their investigation soon to prosecutors, who will decide if charges will be filed.
