Wichita Woman Pleads Guilty In Sex Trafficking Case

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Kansas

WICHITA, KAN. - A Wichita woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in a sex trafficking case in which a 17-year-old girl was the victim, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Natasha L. Harper, 33, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of transporting the girl across state lines for the purpose of prostitution. In her plea, Harper admitted she transported the girl from Kansas to Michigan, Illinois and Iowa and back to Kansas so the girl could engage in sex acts for money. Harper, who placed ads on an adult Web site offering the girl’s services, received part of the money.

Sentencing is set for July 7, 2016. The parties have agreed to recommend a sentence of 90 months in federal prison followed by 10 years on supervised release. Grissom commended the Wichita Police Department and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for his work on the case.
