Former KBI Official Charged With Child Sex Crime

Associated Press - February 13, 2014 10:02 pm

A former Kansas Bureau of Investigation deputy director has been charged with sexual exploitation of a child and trying to destroy evidence.

The Shawnee County prosecutor filed the charges Thursday against 57-year-old Kyle G. Smith, of Topeka. County jail officials said he was released around 5:20 p.m. after posting a $15,000 surety bond.

Prosecutors allege Smith possessed a photo of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. He’s also charged with two counts of interference with law enforcement, alleging he tried to destroy evidence on a telephone and on a computer.

Smith’s attorney, Thomas Haney, didn’t immediately return a message from The Associated Press seeking comment. Smith doesn’t have a listed phone number.

The KBI said in November that Smith was no longer with the agency but would not say why.

How many children will these sex offenders get to mess with women’s mind and body before these psycho maniac be kept away?
