Kansas Man Charged With Sex Trafficking

WICHITA, KAN. – A Morton County man is facing federal sex trafficking charges, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said today.

Timothy Joe Rogers, 31, Elkhart, Kan., is charged with two counts of the sex trafficking of a minor. The indictment alleges he solicited a victim under 18 years old to engage in commercial sex acts.

If convicted he faces a penalty of not less than 10 years and a fine up to $250,000 on each count. The FBI investigated. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart is prosecuting.

In all cases, defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The indictments merely contain allegations of criminal conduct.
