Columbus sex trafficking suspect pleads not guilty

(WTVM) -

Ray Coleman, 20, has pleaded not guilty to charges of sex trafficking today, July 10.

According to police, a month-long investigation led authorities to find out that Coleman had been holding the now 15-year-old runaway against her will. He was forcing her to have sex with multiple men since she was around the age of 12.

Officials say the victim was forced to have sex with unknown men at least three times a day for hundreds of dollars.

Investigators say Coleman and the victim used various hotel rooms to perform the sex acts.

The case has now been turned over to superior court.

Coleman is being held on $10,000 bond.
