A Sedgwick County jury has convicted of a Wichita man of aggravated human trafficking and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties for having sex with a 15-year-old girl and arranging for her to have sex with other men in exchange for money. Michael Neloms, 26, will be sentenced on April 11 by District Judge Joe Kisner.

Wichita police said the girl advertised herself as an escort on a website, giving her age as 19 when she had actually had just turned 15. Neloms was arrested in May 2011 at the Motel 6 at 465 S. Webb.
