HUTCHINSON, Kan. (KSNW) — A former Hutchinson police officer appeared before a judge in Reno County Thursday morning. Todd Allen’s first appearance was through a courtroom television monitor. He listened as the judge read the 24 counts against Allen.

The Hutch Post reported just after 4 p.m. on Thursday that Allen is out of jail after posting a $250,000 bond. This information was confirmed by the Reno County Jail Log.

The Hutchinson Police Department arrested Allen Wednesday in connection to several sex cases dating back to 2012. Allen was an officer at the time of some of the reported crimes. He resigned in 2018.
