Wichita Woman Sentenced For Sex Trafficking of a Minor

WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita woman was sentenced today to 14 years in federal prison for sex trafficking of a 16-year-old girl, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Brittany D. Knighton-Harris, 31, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of sex trafficking. In her plea, Knighton-Harris admitted she recruited the girl and made arrangements for her to perform sex acts for money in Wichita and later in Topeka. The defendant posted notices on an adult web site advertising the girl’s services.

McAllister commended the FBI and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
