Former jail deputy pleads no contest to unlawful sexual relations

WICHITA, Kansas – A former Sedgwick County detention officer has pleaded no contest to trying to have sex with inmates at the county jail.

Former deputy David Kendall had faced more than a dozen counts of sexually assaulting or attempting to assault six inmates over a three-month period in 2012.

He pleaded no contest Monday to six counts of attempted unlawful sexual relations and one count of making a false information.

The plea came the same week that Kendall was to go on trial. Sentencing is set for June 27 before Judge Joseph Bribiesca.
