Internet Predator Laws in Kansas

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 between 14 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 immediately for a consultation to learn how we could defend you.
