UPDATE: Former WPD employee speaks out on Mosley Allegations
In a letter sent to Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett, California Attorney Matthew Pappas reveals that Bennett’s office and the Wichita Police Department worked together to conceal charges against Interim Police Chief Nelson Mosley. The letter goes on to assert that the department maintains a confidential file containing charges and allegations against politically connected individuals in the community.
According to Pappas, who has been working in conjunction with the Lawrence based Swain Law Office, files in this confidential file are excluded from Kansas Open Records Act requests. In the public report, filed by the department, Mosley’s name is omitted and he is instead referred to as a “known subject” in a case where he is accused of savagely beating a woman he was dating, a local nurse.
These allegations come as the Federal Bureau of Investigations announces an investigation into the WPD shooting death of John Paul Quintero, who was shot in the back by an unnamed officer while unarmed, this past January.
