WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A former agent with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement who sent a Wichita television news anchor sensitive law enforcement material is back in jail after allegedly violating his parole.

A prosecutor said Wednesday Andrew J. Pleviak is a danger to his former colleagues and the community. The magistrate granted the government's request for detention.

Pleviak was sentenced in May to time served and a year of supervised release for exceeding authorized access to a government computer.

He was later ordered not to contact current or former employees of the Department of Homeland Security.

The government says Pleviak went to the home of his former supervisor on Sept. 9 and banged on the door, but left before a sheriff's deputy arrived.

His defense attorney says he has mental health issues.
