    PR)—A Wichita, Kan., woman was arraigned Thursday on a charge of soliciting prostitution in Enid. According to the Enid News and Eagle, 26 year-old Michelle Denise Peters has pleaded not guilty, and a cash bond of $2,500 has been posted for her release from jail. Peters was arrested, along with two other people, Aug. 21, after she allegedly met an Oklahoma State Bureau of Narcotics Human Trafficking agent at the Baymont Inn and Suites in Enid. The case began when OBN Human Trafficking agents came to Enid to set up a prostitution investigation with Enid Police Department. The investigation was the result of a posting online related to prostitution. When contacted by an OBN agent posing as a 23-year-old male who works with computers, Peters agreed to travel to the Enid motel to engage in prostitution for “400 roses”, a term an OBN agent said is used for dollars in prostitution. Peters allegedly met the agent at the motel and confirmed to price. At that time, law enforcement arrested Peters and two others including 25 year-old Aubry Cornelius Johnson and 39-year-old Rose Marie Harris. Johnson, of Wichita, was arrested on complaints of transporting for purposes of prostitution, pandering prostitution and driving under suspension. Harris, of Wichita, was arrested on complaints of aiding in prostitution and possession of paraphernalia. Both are set to be arraigned on Sept. 5, while Peters’ next court appearance is set for Sept. 24.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Federal education officials say Oklahoma's public school standards aren't sufficiently preparing students for college or careers and will pull a waiver that lets the state bypass some provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act. The U.S. Department of Education sent a letter to the state Thursday saying that while Oklahoma had benefited from the flexibility, it couldn't justify an extension. Federal officials said Oklahoma had promised to carry out plans to improve education for all students. This year, however, Oklahoma overturned its Common Core standards and adopted those in place in 2010. Delisle told Oklahoma officials they "can no longer demonstrate that the state's standards are college- and career-ready standards." Educators in Indiana and Kansas were granted one-year waivers Thursday, allowing them to continue state-developed programs.
