How did I miss this? After almost two years in jail for molesting foster children placed in his care by the state of Kansas, Noble Rick Pendland is out on bond. There is still no reported trial date set for him. I wonder why this isn't a big story, here in Kansas......? After all, Pendland WAS a foster parent, abusing children day and night with the blessings of local schools, child protective services, and the third party contractors who managed the cases! Citizens of Kansas should be outraged about this! Pendland should not have been able to leave the jail without an angry mob following him.....but no one seems too alarmed about people who abuse their positions to take advantage of others. So as of May 30, Pendland has been out on bond. It's really hard to get Kansas to pay attention when a teacher abuses children.
