Ex-Kan. Water Office chief paroled after 10 years

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former Kansas official has been paroled after serving more than 10 years for kidnapping, burglary and sodomy.

Sixty-six-year-old Alan LeDoux, who headed the Kansas Water Office, was sentenced in 2003 for breaking into the Topeka home of one of his wife's relatives and attacking the woman.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1hg5Zqn ) LeDoux was released on parole Friday under supervision in Jackson County.

The Holton resident had pleaded guilty to the charges stemming from the 2002 attack. He was sentenced to 12 years and three months and entered prison in June 2003.

LeDoux was director of the state's water policy agency from 1995 until he was placed on leave following his 2002 arrest. He had also been a top aide to former Republican governors Bill Graves and Mike Hayden.
