Former KBI Official Due in Court

TOPEKA, Kan.  -  A former top official of the Kansas Bureau of Investigation is due in court on a charge of sexual exploitation of a child.
Kyle Smith's next appearance in Shawnee County District Court had been scheduled for April. But court records show Smith is to appear Thursday morning to enter a plea.
Smith, a former KBI deputy director, is charged with sexual exploitation of a child and interference with law enforcement. He's accused of possessing one sexually explicit photo of a minor in 2013.
Thomas Haney, Smith's attorney, declined comment Wednesday. Haney has said previously that "no child was ever in danger."
The KBI has said its human resources office issued a notice Nov. 26 that Smith no longer worked for the agency. The office provided no details, calling it a personnel matter.
