Kansas Supreme Court disbars former prosecutor

(AP) – The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday disbarred former prosecutor Jacqie Spradling over her conduct in a Topeka murder case.

The court found Spradling engaged in unethical misconduct during the 2012 trial of Dana Chandler, who was convicted of killing her ex-husband and his fiance.

Chandler’s convictions were later overturned because of Spradling’s misconduct.

In June 2021, a state board unanimously recommended that Spradling be disbarred over her conduct in the Chandler case and the 2017 conviction of Jacob Ewing, of Holton, on rape and sodomy against two women.

The Supreme Court said Spradling did not violate ethical standards in the Ewing case.
