WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A court hearing has been delayed for a former Sedgwick County corrections officer accused of sexually assaulting jail inmates.
The preliminary hearing to determine if there's enough evidence to send former deputy David Kendall to trial had been set for Thursday. It's now scheduled for Nov. 14.

Kendall resigned in late June and is facing 12 criminal charges ranging from felony aggravated criminal sodomy to misdemeanor sexual battery. Eleven of the charges accuse him of sex crimes against six inmates from April to June.

Kendall is free on bond. His lawyer has attacked the credibility of the inmates who lodged the complaints.
