WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A second Sedgwick County detention deputy has been charged with sexual misconduct involving inmates.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/Ul6tAo ) reports Sheriff Jeff Easter announced Wednesday that two male inmates complained in October of being subject to "lewd fondling" at a work-release center.

Two counts of unlawful sexual relations were filed in November but didn't become public until Friday when James Conklin of Wichita made a first court appearance.

Conklin's lawyer, Sal Intagliata, says Conklin has 19 years of "honorable service" as a detention deputy. The attorney also says he intends to challenge the credibility of the accusers.

Conklin is free on bond awaiting a Jan. 10 preliminary hearing.

A former Sedgwick County jailer, David Kendall, is charged with sex crimes involving six inmates. His preliminary hearing is scheduled Jan. 23.
