May 22, 2014

A Columbus man and his father have been indicted on federal charges of human trafficking.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine says Keith Arrick Junior and Senior allegedly forced women and at least one minor to work as prostitutes at several Columbus area hotels.

DeWine says the elder Arrick brought some of the women to Ohio from Kentucky, gave them heroin and threatened to kill them if they attempted to leave.
