A Wichita man faces one count of aggravated human trafficking involving a 16-year-old.
In a complaint filed this week in Sedgwick County District Court, Curtis R. Smith Jr., 19, is accused of intentionally recruiting, harboring, transporting or obtaining the younger teen between June 1 and Sept. 27, knowing the teen would be used for forced labor, involuntary servitude or sex.
Records show Smith was booked into Sedgwick County Jail on Nov. 25. In addition to the trafficking charge, he is held on charges of theft and failure to appear in a recent burglary, theft and attempted burglary case. His bond in the trafficking case is $100,000.
Smith’s next court appearance is set for Dec. 31, according to court records. He is the second person charged with aggravated human trafficking this week in Sedgwick County District Court.
On Tuesday, Wichitan Jaylyn M. Bradley, 20, was charged in a case involving a 17-year-old who reportedly was “pimped out” on a website. He is out of custody after posting $100,000 bond.
