Editor's note: An earlier version of this story contained an incorrect figure for traffic cases that Judge Phil Journey handles annually. He handles 22,000 traffic cases annually.

For 12 years, Wichita city assistant attorney and judicial candidate Mike Hoelscher has practiced law in Sedgwick County. He says he has tried to treat everyone with courtesy and respect, “even when our positions were adverse to each other.”

His attorney colleagues – at least the 100 who evaluated him in a survey sponsored by the Wichita Bar Association and The Eagle – agree, giving him near-perfect marks for fairness, ethics and being respectful, courteous and professional.

A judge granted a 60-day continuance Friday for parents accused of beating their adopted daughter, keeping her in a windowless room in the basement and chaining her at times to a bed.

Sedgwick County District Judge Patrick Walters set a child-in-need-of-care trial, also called an adjudication hearing, for Oct, 20, 21 and 22. The trial had been scheduled for Aug. 4 and 5. He also set a pre-trial conference for 8:30 a.m. Oct. 3.

Police put the girl and three adopted siblings into protective custody March 28, and prosecutors filed a child-in-need-of-care petition on behalf of the children April 1. The Eagle has been following the case since then as part of its “In Need of Care” series examining child abuse and neglect in the county.
