Two Wichita men arrested earlier this week on suspicion of recruiting teen girls into the sex trade were charged Thursday in Sedgwick County District Court with multiple counts of human trafficking.
Polo L. Miller, 21, faces four counts of aggravated human trafficking and two counts of commercial sexual exploitation of a child. Co-defendant Alex J. Lane, 20, has been charged with two counts of aggravated human trafficking.
Both men are due back in court April 3 for a preliminary hearing, said Dan Dillon, spokesman for the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office. Each remained in Sedgwick County Jail on Thursday afternoon in lieu of $250,000 bond in the case.
Miller was also being held on a $50,000 bond for failing to appear on a 2013 theft charge, an online roster of jail inmates and court records show.
