CLEVELAND, Ohio (WKBN) – A grand jury returned a three-count superseding indictment charging Ronnie L. Pratt, Jr., 20, with three counts of sex trafficking children, according to a press release sent Wednesday from the U.S. Department of Justice.
Prosecutors claim that Pratt used a website to advertise and traffic three minor girls, one of whom was under the age of 14 when the conduct began, according to court documents. Prosecutors said that Pratt did all this between July and November 2015, according to the indictment, but the release did not specify where.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Bridget M. Brennan and Carmen Henderson following an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
