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.

    Most inmates are not Sheriff-friendly. Toss it on the wall and see what sticks.

    Allegations are so cheap to make and so costly to defend. Making false allegations should be prosecuted to the fullest...

    Such a waste of money allowing all this garbage to cause such a stink because they didn't like getting arrested or serving time in jail.
