A former Sedgwick County Jail deputy facing charges that he sexually assaulted inmates is expected to be released on bond Friday, an official said.

David Kendall’s expected release Friday morning is contingent upon paperwork being completed, sheriff’s Capt. Larry Bragg said Thursday evening.

Earlier Thursday, a judge granted a modified bond for Kendall.

Kendall, who has been held under a $500,000 bond, has been kept in a jail outside Sedgwick County. Under the modification recommended by prosecutors and approved by the judge Thursday, the bond amount remains $500,000, but the components of the bond have changed.

Judge Jeff Syrios also set conditions that Kendall would have to follow if he is able to meet the bond. Among the conditions are GPS monitoring, that he have no contact with alleged victims, that he report to a pre-trial program and that he remain in Sedgwick County.

The charges against Kendall involve six alleged victims and incidents that span more than a two-month period, court records show. Kendall, 22, faces 12 charges — 11 of them relating to alleged sex crimes. The crimes reportedly occurred between April and June.

Kendall resigned after the allegations arose.

A preliminary hearing, to determine whether there is enough evidence to hold a trial, has been set for Sept. 6, but it could be postponed.
