(SEDGWICK COUNTY, Kan.) — Eyewitness News has confirmed another inmate has come forward claiming he was sexually assaulted by a Sedgwick County Jail deputy.
Attorney Mark Schoenhofer says the victim, who is in his 20's, claims he was raped by the deputy. Schoenhofer says his investigation has turned up evidence to prove the claim. He says it's the same deputy who's accused of raping another inmate earlier this month.
"Our investigation has produced numerous witnesses who have either been solicited by the same deputy for sex or they are in a position to learn about what happened," says Schoenhofer.
Earlier this month, an inmate says the deputy handcuffed and raped him in his cell in the middle of the night.
Schoenhofer says the new claim has very similar circumstances, but no handcuffs were used. He also says the two victims do not know each other.
