Jury Convicts SD Man Of Commercial Sex Trafficking

Jury Convicts SD Man Of Commercial Sex Trafficking
SIOUX FALLS, SD - A federal jury has convicted a Sioux Falls man of commercial sex trafficking after he answered an online advertisement posted by undercover police officers.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says the jury found 53-year-old Ron Bonestroo guilty of the charge after a one-day trial.  Johnson says Bonestroo answered an ad and arranged to pay for sex with what he believed would be two 14-year-old girls in Sioux Falls.

The advertisement was posted by undercover officers as part of "Operation Crossing Guard." Officers were conducting the sting operation to identify people who attempt to purchase sex acts with children.

Johnson says officers arrested Bonestroo when he arrived at the undercover location.  Bonestroo, who has been remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
