Common Prostitution Stings in KC
As you most likely know, it is against the law to solicit or patronize a prostitute in Kansas City. What you may not know is that several jurisdictions in the area operate “stings,” which is when law enforcement or a court go undercover to catch people in the act of soliciting or patronizing a prostitute.
The following jurisdictions operate stings in the Kansas City metro area: Kansas City, Missouri; Kansas City, Kansas; Lenexa, Kansas; Merriam, Kansas; Overland Park, Kansas; and Independence, Missouri.
The KC Traffic Lawyer has represented clients in all of the above jurisdictions on the charges of either patronizing a prostitute or soliciting one. By far, the biggest sting operation is Kansas City, Missouri, which is followed by Overland Park. The vice squad places an ad in either Pitch Weekly’s Packpage.com, Craigslist, or both.
