Driving Prostitutes, Robbing Customers Were Part of the Job for Wichita Man

WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita man pleaded guilty Monday to carrying a gun during a robbery of a man who was going to meet with a prostitute, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Christian L. Dixon, 28, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of carrying a firearm during a crime of violence. In his plea, he admitted he worked with another man who was running a prostitution business. Dixon’s job included obtaining drugs and driving prostitutes to meetings with customers. In a meeting in a vacant apartment in the 1200 block of Longfellow, Dixon and the other man robbed a customer of his wallet, money and cell phone at gunpoint. Dixon carried a gun during the robbery.

Sentencing is set for Jan. 28. Both parties have agreed to recommend a sentence of five years in federal prison.

Co-defendant Johnell Carter, 22, Wichita, Kan., is set for a change of plea hearing Nov. 26. McAllister commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
