Communications Team | (316) 268-4351

The 18th Judicial District Court ruled today that Sedgwick County has the legal authority to bill cities for maintaining municipal prisoners in the Sedgwick County Detention Facility and that the cities are obligated to pay for housing. The cities involved include Wichita.

Following is a response from the City of Wichita City Attorney Gary Rebenstorf:

“The City is disappointed in the court’s ruling today. The court’s ruling is a change from the preliminary decision that was highly favorable to the City. The City Attorney’s Office is reviewing the court ruling and will advise the City Council regarding the City’s legal options.”
