Deputy who was arrested twice in same day loses cop license


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Sedgwick County sheriff’s deputy who was arrested twice in the same day last year has lost his license to be an officer.

The Wichita Eagle reports the Kansas Commission on Peace Officers’ Standards and Training revoked the law enforcement certification of Raymond Paredes in July after he pleaded guilty in April to misdemeanor battery.

Paredes was arrested Oct. 31 after a domestic battery call at his home in Bel Aire. The sheriff’s department says Paredes was arrested later in the day after bonding out of jail and returning to the home, which violated a protection order.

The revocation order says Paredes put his hand on his wife’s neck and pushed her against a wall.His employment with the Sedgwick County sheriff’s office ended March 21.
