Did you know that same-sex intercourse is still illegal in Kansas? Under K.S.A. 21-5504(a) sodomy, even between consenting adults, is illegal. While still on the books as a crime in Johnson County, and across the state of Kansas, such laws have been deemed unconstitutional over a decade ago (see Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003)). Just because the crime is defined under the statute does not mean it is enforced, as is typically the case here.
However, sodomy involving children and/or non-consenting adults is still a crime that is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Bestiality, non-vaginal intercourse involving you with minors, and unconsented non-vaginal intercourse with you and another adult, could leave you facing anywhere between 9 months to life in prison. In addition, sex crimes carry high bond amounts when charged. These are not just taboo charges, in Kansas, these are very serious.
Remember you are not doing yourself any favors by giving statements to the police, handing over what you believe to be evidence of your innocence, or cooperating with an investigation. Doing so, without legal advice, is dangerous. If you are charged with, or under investigation for, sodomy or aggravated sodomy, anywhere in Kansas, call Attorney T. Morton NOW (913) 602-7288. Consultations are free and payment plans are available.
