TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

A Toledo man has been found guilty on human trafficking charges after setting up an online prostitution ring involving two minor girls.

Brady Jackson, 27, faces up to 10 years on each of his two counts of sex trafficking of children.

"This verdict is another stark reminder that human trafficking hides in plain sight," said U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Ohio, Steven Dettelbach. "This defendant forced these girls were into the commercial sex industry for the sole purpose of profiting off them."

Jackson advertised on BackPage.com in September 2011 that the two girls, ages 16 and
15, were available for prostitution
. According to court records, he told the girls he would take all the money they made from prostitution, but would take them shopping and get their hair and nails done.

Jackson was arrested by police and FBI units in Georgia in May 2012, after information found during the investigation indicated he may have been traveling near Atlanta. 

He will be sentenced later this year, however, an exact date has not yet been determined.
