To address the consumer-level demand for prostitution and sex trafficking, sex buyers have been arrested and their identities released to the pubic.  For example, in April, 2021, a man was arrested in Osage County on suspicion of human trafficking after he planned to meet with someone he believed to be a minor for the purpose of having sex.  The 49 year old man was taken into custody and was booked into the Osage County Jail in Lyndon, KS. The Osage County Sheriff;s Office had been conducting an investigation into the online solicitation of a child by an adult.  As a result of the investigation, members of the Osage County Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigation Unit took the suspect into custody.  He was booked into the Osage County Jail on charges of aggravated human trafficking; commercial sexual exploitation of a child; and several illicit drug charges.
