Wichita police officer charged with sex crimes

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A former Wichita police officer who pleaded guilty in January to sexual battery while on duty has been accused of abusing two children.

The Wichita Eagle reports that 28-year-old Joseph T. McGill was charged Friday with aggravated indecent liberties with two children. He was being held on a $500,000 bond in the Sedgwick County Jail and has a preliminary hearing June 7.

A court document says he planned to hire an attorney.

McGill was sentenced in March to three years' probation after pleading guilty to charges stemming from allegations that he inappropriately touched residents on two occasions while working as a police officer.

He worked for the police department for three years but resigned after the earlier charges were filed.
