A Sedgwick County detention deputy has been cleared of misconduct following a three-month investigation.

Last June, sheriff investigators began looking into allegations that a jailer had mistreated an inmate. The complaint was made by another sheriff's office employee.

During the investigation, interviews were conducted with 70 witnesses and the case was turned over to the district attorney's office last week. The DA's office declined to charge and the employee was cleared of any criminal misconduct.

The deputy had been working in a restricted capacity during the investigation and had no contact with inmates, but has now been returned to full duty.
