A Minnesota man has been convicted of human trafficking in northwest Kansas.
On Thursday, a Logan County jury convicted 27-year-old Preston Sanders of aggravated human trafficking of a minor, knowing that person would be used for the sexual gratification of another. Sanders, a St. Paul, Minnesota resident, was also found guilty of transporting an open container of alcohol, furnishing alcohol to a minor and driving with a suspended license.
He was arrested following a traffic stop on I-70, and subsequent investigation by the Logan County Sheriff's Office, Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Kansas Highway Patrol, Des Moines, Iowa Police Department and the St. Paul, Minnesota Police Department.
Other details about the case were not released.
Sanders is scheduled to be sentenced on December 5.
