Man Convicted Of Human Trafficking

Associated Press - October 4, 2013 3:14 pm

A jury in western Kansas has convicted a 27-year-old Minnesota man on charges related to human trafficking.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office says in a release that a Logan County jury on Thursday convicted Preston Sanders, of St. Paul, Minn., of transporting a person under 18 knowing that person would be used for sex. He also was found guilty of transporting an open container of alcohol, furnishing alcohol to a minor and driving on a suspended license.

Schmidt’s office says Sanders was arrested after a traffic stop on Interstate 70 and an investigation that involved the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and the Kansas Highway Patrol.
