WICHITA (AP) – A man who operates a Wichita inflatables company where a child died has been convicted of running the business without proper licensing.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Jesse Zogleman was found guilty Wednesday in municipal court on two of three misdemeanor charges he faced. Court records show he was ordered to pay $730 in fines and court costs and put on probation for 12 months.
Zogleman runs the day-to-day operations for Moonwalks for Fun and Pure Entertainment. In 2010, a 5-year-old boy died at Pure Entertainment after falling off an inflatable provided by Moonwalks for Fun.
Afterward, the city’s inflatables ordinances were tightened. Moonwalks for Fun’s license to operate inside city limits revoked last year after a liability coverage lapse. But prosecutors said he continued attempting to do business.
