Jackson County is a largely rural area with approximately 13,o00 residents, located in northeast Kansas, near Topeka. Holton is the county’s seat and largest city. In an effort to reduce consumer-level demand for prostitution, police have conducted reverse stings. In February 2020, two men were arrested by deputies on charges of buying sexual relations and unlawful use of a communication facility following a joint human trafficking operation conducted by the Jackson County and Shawnee County sheriff’s offices. Their identities were released to the press. In a separate investigation, a third man was arrested on charges of aggravated indecent liberties with a child under the age of 14 and promoting obscenity to a minor.
