Colloton to Lead Human Trafficking Fight in Kansas

KSAL StaffJuly 15, 2013

The Kansas Attorney General’s office has named a former legislator to lead a unit aimed at implementing state laws on human trafficking.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports  that Attorney General Derek Schmidt said Monday that Pat Colloton, a Leawood Republican, will be the assistant attorney general in charge of the newly-formed Anti-Human Trafficking Unit.

Colloton’s job will involve implementing legislation passed this year that includes increased penalties for trafficking and services for victims.

Colloton is a lawyer and served four terms in the House, starting in 2004.

Colloton was also chairwoman of the House Committee on Corrections and Juvenile Justice.
