TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A panel of attorneys has recommended Assistant Allen County Attorney Jacqie Spradling face ethics charges for her actions while prosecuting a rape trial in Jackson County in 2017.

Spradling, a former Jackson County special prosecutor, is accused of allegedly misleading jurors who found a man guilty of sex crimes that were later thrown out on appeal.

The lawyers reviewed the Kansas Disciplinary Administrators Office’s investigation of Spradling and concluded there was sufficient evidence to believe she violated the state’s code of conduct in the 2017 convictions against Jacob Ewing for rape, aggravated criminal sodomy, battery, and other charges, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
