Sex Trafficking Arrests In Sioux Falls

Sex Trafficking Arrests In Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Eighteen men are arrested in a prostitution bust in Sioux Falls.

Minnehaha County State's Attorney Aaron McGowan announced the arrests at police briefing on Wednesday.  McGowan says 17 of the 18 suspects were arrested Tuesday evening.

McGowan says the arrests are part of a federal investigation regarding sex trafficking in South Dakota.  It suggests the activities happened during a three-month period of time between December 2011 and February 2012.

Sixteen of the men face charges for hiring or attempting to hire a person to engage in sexual activity:

Gregory Aarbo, Michael Bloomberg, Jonathan Cahoy, Robert Corsini, Justin Doescher, Kevin Dolejsi, Justin Glaser, Martin Gullickson, Troy D. Johnson, Jacob Law, David Meehan, Terry Ohlenkamp, John Planting, Jason Quinn, Timothy Schuck and David Weipert.

The men charged are from Sioux Falls, Lennox, Volga and Brandon. 

Neal Castle and Nickolaus McCracken are charged with fourth degree rape of a victim between 13 and 16-years-old and solicitation of a minor.

If convicted, they face up to 15 years behind bars.

McGowan says all of the arrests were made in a quick and efficient manner Tuesday to keep the suspects from fleeing from an arrest.  We'll have an in-depth look at the court papers filed against the men today on KELOLAND News.
