2 admit taking victim across state lines for prostitution
KANSAS CITY (AP) - Two Missouri residents have pleaded guilty in federal court to transporting a person across state lines for prostitution.
U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson says 59-year-old Milton Charles Wilson of Kansas City and 19-year-old Kayla Pinkerton of Lee's Summit entered guilty pleas in separate appearances on Wednesday.
The two admitted taking a person to Kansas to engage in prostitution in December 2013. Prosecutors say Wilson advertised the victim for prostitution on the Internet and paid for a hotel room at a North Kansas City motel. He also took Pinkerton and the victim to various other locations in Missouri and Kansas.
Pinkerton admitted taking photographs of the victim and later uploading them to the website.
Wilson will be sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, while Pinkerton is facing up to 10 years.
