Preston Sanders, 27, of St. Paul, Minn., was found guilty of transporting a person under 18 years of age knowing that person would be used for the sexual gratification of another. He also was found guilty of transporting an open container of alcohol, furnishing alcohol to a minor and driving on a suspended license.

 

The investigation began after a traffic stop on Interstate 70 involving the vehicle in which Sanders was traveling. The charges stemmed from an investigation by the Logan County Sheriff’s Office, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, the Kansas Highway Patrol, the Des Moines, Iowa, Police Department and the St. Paul, Minn., Police Department.

 

Sanders will be sentenced December 5 at 10 a.m. by Judge Glenn D. Schiffner.

 

The case was prosecuted by Logan County Attorney Margaret P. Mahoney and Assistant Attorney General Christine Ladner of Schmidt’s office.
