9 indicted on child sex trafficking charges in San Diego

Nine people have been indicted on federal child sex trafficking and prostitution charges in San Diego.

Six of the defendants pleaded not guilty after the federal grand jury indictment was unsealed Tuesday in U.S. District Court.

U.S. attorney’s officials say the defendants are members of a criminal street gang. The group includes five men and three women from Oceanside and one 57-year-old man from Wildomar.

Prosecutors say the group used the Craigslist Website between January and November 2009 to solicit clients for three young women, ages 15, 16 and 19.

If convicted, the defendants face 10-15 years or life in prison, depending on their criminal history.
