KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - A western Missouri woman has been sentenced to slightly more than three years in prison for sex trafficking in Kansas.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 21-year-old Danyelle Putman, of Independence, was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Kansas City, Kan.
Putman and a co-defendant, Tony A. Rogers, of Kansas City, Mo., both pleaded guilty in December to transporting a person over state lines to engage in prostitution.
Rogers and Putman were arrested in August 2012 by police conducting a prostitution sting in the Johnson County town of Prairie Village. An investigator called a number on a website and arranged with Putman for a woman to meet in Prairie Village for sex.
Putman and Rogers were arrested after dropping off a 17-year-old girl who police described at the time as a runaway.
