TOLEDO, Ohio — The two men accused of forcing a woman into prostitution were indicted on charges of kidnapping and human trafficking in Lucas County Common Please Court Tuesday.
On Feb. 13, officers reportedly arrived at a home on the 5500 block of Christopher Ct. to check on the safety of a woman who said the people there were "shooting her up with dope."
Upon arrival, officers took two men into custody. They were identified as Sean Turvey, 43, of Erie, Mich. and Jakeb Hinson, 21, of Toledo, Ohio.
The victim accused both Turvey and Hinson of holding her against her will. According to court records, the victim said that Turvey was controlling her activities and accepting payment from men in order for her to perform sexual acts.
The victim told police that Hinson was helping Turvey with these actions, but Hinson claimed he was only serving as "protection" for the victim. He confirmed that he witnessed Turvey take the money.
Both men are charged with promoting prostitution.
Additionally, officers reportedly found meth, LSD tablets and mushrooms in Turvey's bedroom.
It is unclear when these men will return to the courtroom.
