Man to plead guilty to sex trafficking charges

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) -- A 31-year old man is expected to enter a plea of guilty to sex trafficking charges in federal court this afternoon.

Khari Troutman was indicted in March of this year of two charges of sex trafficking, but the case has been sealed until recently.

Troutman is said to transported the 21-year-old victim from Maryland to Tennessee, where she escaped and alerted police from a borrowed cell phone.

The victim told investigators that she'd agreed to work for Troutman as a prostitute, and have him server as her pimp when they met in Maryland.

Afterwards, she wanted to see her children and return home. She alleges that Troutman held her captive, abusing her and having her continue to meet men for sex.
