A Ramsey County jury found a 27-year-old Brooklyn Park man guilty on Friday in connection with a human sex trafficking operation that involved numerous victims — including women who were mentally slow or vulnerable — across multiple Minnesota communities.
After five days of deliberation, a jury could not come to a unanimous decision in the case of a St. Paul sex trafficking ring that targeted vulnerable teenage girls, according to the Ramsey County Attorney. A trial date has now been set for early September, according to the attorney, in the case that prosecutes two brothers and their two uncles for sex trafficking at least 10 known victims.
Two St. Paul brothers, their uncles and a woman are now facing charges of sex trafficking that spanned over the last couple years, the Ramsey County Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday.
