BENTON, Kan. (KSNW) – New details were released Wednesday in the investigation of the sexual battery allegations against Benton City administrator and former police lieutenant Charles Hefton.
Hefton was arrested two weeks ago. The alleged incident involved a former female employee of the City of Benton. Benton Police Chief Braeden Moore made the report. Chief Moore said Hefton would talk about the victim frequently and refer to the two as soulmates.
