Woman pleads for not reporting teen prostitute

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas woman pleaded guilty to not reporting that a 17-year-old girl was working as a prostitute.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said in a news release that 25-year-old Brittany Morris of Winfield pleaded guilty Monday to misprision of a felony.

Prosecutors say Morris and the girl were arrested after meeting two undercover officers at a hotel near DeSoto for prostitution.

Officers learned the girl was only 17 and had worked with Morris as a prostitute in New Orleans, Wichita and Kansas City. Morris and the girl advertised sexual services on the internet.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 18, 2015. Attorneys recommended a sentence of between eight and 14 months in federal prison.
