Deputy Vance VanKirk
“Lancaster (WKOW) – A Grant County Sheriff’s deputy has been charged with felony child abuse, and placed on administrative leave from his position.

A criminal complaint states, 47-year-old Vance VanKirk used “the belt from his duty pants” to spank one of his children in May.  The complaint states the child told school officials VanKirk told the child not to discuss what had happened.

According to the complaint, VanKirk admitted to spanking the child 4 or 5 times with his belt.  The complaint says the child was bruised.  Court records say VanKirk suspected the child had cut the hair of another child on a school bus against the child’s wishes, and the spanking with the belt was punishment.  The complaint says VanKirk later learned his child had not cut anyone’s hair.”
