Prosecutors on Friday charged a 19-year-old Wichita man with two counts of aggravated human trafficking. Both charges involve 16-year-old victims.

A complaint filed in Sedgwick County District Court alleges Terrance J. Carter used the two teens for “forced labor, involuntary servitude or sexual gratification” between June 1 and Sept. 27. Authorities arrested and jailed Carter on Thursday at his home in the 2100 block of North Meridian, Sedgwick County Jail booking records show. He is being held on $100,000 bond.

A police report dated Sept. 27 shows the offenses connected to Carter’s charges include the “sale of sexual relations” by a minor at a hotel in the 5500 block of West Kellogg.

At his first appearance Friday afternoon, Carter told Judge Joe Kisner he planned to hire a private attorney. He is due back in court Jan. 23 for a preliminary hearing.
