A Kansas City man who federal authorities said has ties to a violent motorcycle gang was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in federal prison for transporting an individual across state lines for prostitution.
Milton Charles Wilson, 59, also is known as “Barbwire,” pleaded guilty in April in U.S. District Court to taking an individual across the state line into Kansas to engage in prostitution in December 2013.
Authorities said Wilson admitted that he placed an online ad offering the individual for sexual activity. He also paid for a hotel room at the American Inn in North Kansas City. Wilson took the victim and a co-defendant to various locations in Missouri and Kansas, including Overland Park.
Co-defendant Kayla Pinkerton, 20, also is known as “Foxy,” was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison after pleading guilty in July.

Court documents identify Wilson as the president of the Kansas City chapter of the Sons of Silence Motorcycle Club.
