WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A 32-year-old Wichita woman has been charged in federal court with sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office says Natasha Harper was charged Friday with one count of providing the girl for commercial sex. Court documents say Harper was arrested in a sting operation conducted by the Wichita Police Department.

Officers arranged for the teenager to meet them Thursday at a local hotel and arrested Harper when she brought the girl there.

Prosecutors say investigators learned that Harper had been advertising on the Internet that the victim would perform sexual services for $150 to $200 a session.

It was not immediately clear Friday if Harper had obtained an attorney. If convicted she could face at least 10 years in federal prison.
