Friday morning, FBI agents arrested Cordell Jenkins, 46, and Anthony Haynes, 37, for alleged sex trafficking of children. Both men reportedly appeared in U.S. District Court Friday before being booked in the Lucas County, Ohio jail. The charges stem from what appear to be three years of illegal activity involving at least one minor, who was 14-years-old at the time of the alleged acts.
“The affidavit alleges that Haynes, along with a woman, engaged in sex acts on multiple occasions with a female teenager, including at a hotel on Alexis Road and the Bel Air Hotel, and paid her money to keep quiet about the encounters,” read a report by CBS affiliate WTOL. “Haynes is accused of introducing the teenager to other adults who also paid the girl to have sex. The affidavit names Jenkins as one of these adults.”
