SPRING HILL, Kan. — A Johnson County Sheriff’s deputy is under investigation for sex crimes

The Miami County Sheriff’s office confirmed to 41 Action News that a person was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery and aggravated sodomy in connection to the incident.

Online records indicate the person has worked as a Johnson County Sheriff’s Deputy since 2015. A spokesperson with the Johnson County Sheriff’s office declined to comment, citing a personnel matter.

The Miami County Prosecutor’s office says the case is an open investigation and couldn’t comment further.
