Thompson was placed on administrative leave back in March.
The Shawnee County District Attorney’s Office requested the attorney general’s office handle the matter.
No charges have been filed at this time. Schmidt’s office says criminal charges are merely accusations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
