Kansas Sex Offender Sentenced For Transporting Virginia Teen for Sex

KSAL StaffSeptember 13, 2017

A registered sex offender from Kansas was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years in federal prison for picking up a 16-year-old girl in Virginia and taking her across state lines to have sex with him.

According to U.S. Attorney Tom Beall, 21-year-old Logan Viquesney from Kansas City, Kansas, pleaded guilty to one count of interstate transportation of a minor to engage in sexual activity.

In his plea, Viquesney admitted he communicated with the victim over the internet while she was staying with her grandparents in Virginia. On May 30, 2016, the victim was reported missing from her grandparents’ home. Investigators learned that Viquesney had driven to Virginia, picked up the girl, and taken her with him on a trip that took them from Virginia to Maryland, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas. While on the trip, Viquesney had sex with the girl.

Viquesney was arrested after he arrived in Kansas City, Kan., with the girl.

Beall commended the Kansas City, Kan., Police Department, the Lenexa Police Department, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Kim Flannigan for their work on the case.
