Federal prosecutors have charged a man with sex trafficking for allegedly prostituting three juveniles in the Twin Cities area.
A criminal complaint filed Thursday accuses 25-year-old Dontre D'Sean McHenry of being a pimp for three girls, ages 17, 15 and 16. He was arrested at a Roseville motel in March after Minneapolis police and a Homeland Security investigator responded to an ad on a website called Backpage that led them to a Roseville motel March 12.
The 15-year-old had gone missing in February from her grandmother's home in Rochester. The complaint says she ran away from McHenry around March 1. She was found in Illinois in April and returned to Rochester. The complaint also says the 17-year-old helped recruit the 16-year-old.
Online court records don't list an attorney for McHenry.
