A new law in Kansas was recently passed stating that it is a crime for police officers to have sex with people they pull over for traffic violates or detain in criminal investigations.
According to MSN, Kansas was one of the 33 states where consensual sex between a police officer and a person in their custody is considered legal. Gov.Jeff Colyer signed the new law after it was passed by the members of the House Judiciary Committee. The bill was first introduced by Rep. Cindy Holscher,D-Olathe.
Holscher said she created the bill after discovering Lamonte Murray’s case. He was released last year after serving 23 years in prison for a double murder that he was falsely convicted for. The case was thoroughly investigated and led to details of the arresting officer, Roger Golubski, of coercing sex from black women in Kansas City or else he would threatened to arrest them or their loved ones if they did not comply.

Previously the law stated that there should not be consensual sex between a police officer and a person in jail. But it did not specify for those in custody or if they were stopped in the street. Rep. John Carmichael, D-Wichita, says sex on the job will be more difficult for police officers as they are required to wear body cameras.
He added that Holser found a loophole in the law which prompted it’s creation:
‘You mean it’s not against the law?’ She said, ‘No, it’s not,’
“I checked with the revisor (of statutes) and it was not specifically against the law in Kansas.”

Carmichael believes the law will be more strictly enforced and there’s always someone that ruins it for the bunch.
“Most officers are great guys and women who are working hard, but there’s always the one“
