(MCT) Former Sedgwick County Jail deputy David Kendall faces sentencing Friday for attempted unlawful sexual relations with inmates.

Kendall pleaded no contest in May to six counts of attempted unlawful sexual relations with inmates and one count of making a false information.

Kendall is scheduled to be sentenced at 8:45 a.m. Friday in Sedgwick County District Court in a case that drew wide attention. The 2012 sheriff's race became dominated by issues involving the jail. A key issue was a controversy over how the Sheriff's Office dealt with Kendall.

The crimes under Kendall's plea agreement carry the likelihood of probation.

Kendall had been facing a dozen charges, including felony aggravated criminal sodomy and misdemeanor sexual battery, involving six inmates in 2012.

The crimes under the plea agreement involved attempted consensual sex with six different inmates in April and June of 2012. He resigned after the allegations against him arose.

The count of making a false information involved an entry on a log to obstruct detection of one of the crimes, a prosecutor said.
