Trying to support a survivor of domestic abuse but don’t know how? Here are a few tips
A Johnson County sheriff’s deputy was arrested and charged in a domestic violence case this week, according to court records.
Eric Leon Walker, 38, was charged with aggravated battery, aggravated domestic battery and criminal restraint in Johnson County District Court.
Walker was booked into the Johnson County jail Friday with bond set at $5,000. He was released after posting bond.
Charging documents said Walker allegedly caused “great bodily harm to another person or disfigurement of another person” and restrained the victim at an Olathe home Thursday.
The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday confirmed Walker is a deputy. It referred all questions about the incident to the Olathe Police Department.
A court hearing in the case is scheduled May 23.
