( Columbus, Ohio ) - The Ohio Attorney General says a father/son pair are now in custody and under federal indictment for human trafficking.
46-Year-Old Keith Arrick Sr (pictured) of Ft Mitchell, Kentucky, and 21-year-old Keith Arrick Jr of Columbus, Ohio, are facing multiple charges including conspiracy, sex trafficking of a minor, and sex trafficking by force, fraud, or coercion.
The Arricks allegedly forced multiple women and one underage girl to have sex with customers for money from September 2013 to February 2014. Investigators say the men would set up the women in hotels in the Columbus area and then find customers online. The women were also allegedly beaten or threatened with violence if they said they wanted to stop.
Arrick Sr is being held in Kenton County on unrelated charges. Arrick Jr was arrested in Columbus on Tuesday.
