Sex Trafficking Suspects Make Initial Appearances

By  | 

Jackson, Miss. Law enforcement agencies in the Jackson metropolitan area have made dozens of arrests as part of the FBI's roundup of underage prostitutes and human sex traffickers.

Bond was set in Rankin County court Tuesday for three men charged with human trafficking.

Christopher Jermaine Armstrong of Hattiesburg; James Edward Williams Jr. and William Charles Toliver, both of Jackson, appeared before Judge Kent McDaniel.

Toliver faces two counts of human trafficking, and Williams and Armstrong are each charged with one count of human trafficking and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.

Armstrong was denied bond because of a probation violation. Bond was set at $10,000 for Williams and at $50,000 for Toliver.

Court appearances are pending others arrested in the investigation.
