Councilman Campos enters diversion agreement

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Topeka City Councilman John M. Campos II entered a diversion agreement on two felonies that led to an effort to remove him from the council.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1opJ6WD ) Shawnee County District Court records show Campos entered the diversion Tuesday.

Campos was briefly booked into jail on April 22 on felony charges of making a false writing and interference with law enforcement. Prosecutors contend Campos presented a fake insurance card to the city’s legal department while trying to have a ticket from a traffic stop dismissed.

District Attorney Chad Taylor filed documents the same week seeking to remove Campos from the council.

As of Tuesday, Campos is still on the council. He has until Monday to respond to the ouster petition.
