Statute

Kan. Stat. Ann. ยง 21-6614

Any person convicted of prostitution may petition the court that convicted them to expunge the conviction and related arrest records. Unfortunately, the statute requires that the survivor wait at least one year after the sentence, probation, and diversion agreement have been served.

The petitioner must prove that they were acting under the coercion of another or that the offenses were as a result of the trafficking. A hearing is required in all instances and the survivor must appear in court. Expungement in Kansas does not disturb or undo the finding of guilt.
