WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man who was permanently banished from Kansas as a condition of a criminal plea deal is seeking to return.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas says the punishment harkens to the vigilante justice of the Old West.
A Montgomery County judge will hear arguments on Aug. 8 over the motion filed by ACLU that aims to allow Bo Dana Rupert to return to Kansas from Texas.
Rupert was sentenced to 12 months of probation in 2017 related to criminal threats. The court accepted the plea agreement Rupert had entered with Montgomery County Attorney Larry Markle that bars him from returning to Kansas.
ACLU Legal Director Lauren Bonds calls it one of the most bizarre and illegal sentences she has seen.
Markle did not immediately return a message.
