New law prohibits Kansas police from having sex with people in custody


Police in Kansas are now prohibited from engaging in consensual sex with people in their custody, after Gov. Jeff Colyer signed a bill into law this week.

Kansas was apparently one of 33 states that didn’t explicitly forbid sexual relations “during the course of a traffic stop, a custodial interrogation, an interview in connection with an investigation, or while the law enforcement officer has such person detained.”

The bill, sponsored by Kansas state Rep. Cindy Holscher, D-Olathe, was signed by Colyer, a Republican, along with several other law-enforcement measures, the Wichita Eagle reported.

The bill sprung from a case in which a detective wrongfully accused a Kansas City man of double murder, for which the suspect later spent 23 years in prison.
