WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A retired Wichita police lieutenant has admitted fabricating documents and agreed to forfeit the $56,400 he unlawfully received under a contract to train law enforcement agencies on responses to armed engagement.

Kevin P. Vaughn pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of embezzlement of public funds and one count of mail fraud. The 51-year-old Wichita man acknowledged he falsified reports to make it look like his company, Red Mist Tactical, had completed 15 eight-hour classes the company agreed to provide last year.

He also admitted he fabricated student sign-up sheets for the classes and forged signatures of officers.

Vaughn retired in March 2015 after 28 years with the Wichita Police Department.

Sentencing is set for Nov. 16.
