KANSAS CITY — A suburban Kansas City man has been sentenced in federal court for attempted commercial sex trafficking of a child.
The U.S. Attorney's office said 48-year-old Steven E. Mikoloyck, of Overland Park, Kan., was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison without parole. He was also fined $5,000. He pleaded guilty Dec. 18, 2009.
The conviction was the result of an undercover investigation into child prostitution in the Kansas City area. Seven defendants have been indicted in the case.
The U.S. attorney's office said in a news release that during the undercover operation, officers placed Internet ads about underage prostitutes. When the defendants arrived at the undercover residence and paid cash for a child prostitute, they were arrested by task force officers.
