In the Kansas Statutes, "Electronic Solicitation" is found under
K.S.A. § 21-5509. Internet solicitation became common as commodities such as email, AIM,
chat rooms and text messaging became available. People are more aware
of the crime today, but many children are still deceived by internet predators.
As a severity level 3, person felony, electronic solicitation of a child
between14 and 16 years old could be punished by up to 100 months in prison
and a maximum fine of $300,000. If the child is under 14, however, it
is a severity level 1, person felony and is punishable by up to a $500,000
fine and life in prison. If you are facing such charges, contact our offices
