Unruly man found guilty
Earlier this month, a Leavenworth County District Court judge found guilty a man accused of battering a Basehor police officer in 2004.
On May 5, Judge Frederick Stewart found Eric Finney of Leavenworth guilty of battery of a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process, Basehor prosecutor Gary Nelson said.
Finney also was charged with assault of a law enforcement officer, but the judge waived the charge because it's an offense similar to the battery charge, the prosecutor said.
Finney will be sentenced at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 1 in district court. All of the charges he's convicted of are misdemeanors.
The charges stem from an April 2004 incident at the Basehor Police Department in which Finney allegedly became unruly with police officers. Police said Finney came to the police department believing that his daughter was being held in custody there. When police told Finney the city didn't have a jail and that his daughter was being held in Leavenworth, he became agitated.
