Kansas attorney general to announce arrests linked to online ads

Kansas Attorney General Steve Six is announcing two arrests linked to adult services listings in the online directory Backpage.com.

Six was scheduled to join Wyandotte County District Attorney Jerome Gorman at a news conference Wednesday at the county courthouse in Kansas City, Kan.

No details were being disclosed before then, but the attorney general's office said both arrests took place in Wyandotte County.

In September, Six and 21 other attorneys general asked Backpage.com to immediately remove all listings for adult services and to institute review policies for all advertisements.
