A Federal Jury has found a man guilty of human sex trafficking in Sioux Falls, stemming from a case authorities were calling a "house of horrors."
Mohammed Alaboudi was charged with four counts of human trafficking. US Attorney Brendan Johnson says Alaboudi was operating a prostitution ring out of house on south First Avenue where young girls and women were drugged and forced to perform sex acts for money.
Many of the victims who testified at trial said they were given meth and other drugs and were sometimes beaten if they didn't cooperate with Alaboudi's demands.
Johnson says the house of horrors was in operation for over a year. No sentencing date has been set.
