August 05, 2010
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – An attorney for Jackson County Sheriff Charles Cornell says he is confident a state investigation will clear the sheriff of any misconduct.
Chris Joseph, an attorney for Cornell, says a former inmate at the Jackson County Jail in Holton has made an allegation of misconduct against the sheriff. Joseph would not reveal other details of the allegation.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Kansas Bureau of Investigation is conducting the investigation. Joseph says he expects the investigation to end in about a week.
Cornell has been sheriff since 2004. He previously worked for the Salina and Holton police departments.
