Sedgwick County prosecutors on Tuesday charged a Wichita man with aggravated human trafficking involving a 17-year-old.

In a complaint filed in Sedgwick County District Court, Jaylyn M. Bradley, 20, is accused of recruiting, harboring, transporting or obtaining the teen sometime between March 3 and April 8, knowing the teen would be “used to engage in forced labor, involuntary servitude or sexual gratification.”

Bradley was arrested Dec. 16 at his home in the 400 block of North St. Paul, a Sedgwick County Jail booking report shows. On a Wichita police incident report dated April 8, an officer reported that the teen had been “pimped out” using a website. The incident address given is 6345 E. Kellogg Drive, the Starlite Motor Lodge.

Asked about Bradley’s arrest Tuesday, Wichita police Lt. Jeff Weible of the Exploited and Missing Child Unit said he could not share details of the case because it had been turned over to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office for charges.

Bradley is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Dec. 31. Court records show he was released from jail Tuesday after posting $100,000 bond.

He has previous convictions for aggravated battery and attempted robbery, according to the Kansas Department of Corrections. Both offenses occurred this year in Sedgwick County.
