BALTIMORE (AP) — A federal jury has convicted a Maryland man of forcing at least eight people, some of them children, to engage in sex acts for his personal financial gain.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office says in a news release that 43-year-old Feliciano de Jesus Diaz-Martinez of Owings Mills, Maryland, was convicted of multiple charges, including sex trafficking of a child and enticement of a minor to engage in prostitution.
Diaz-Martinez has been in custody since his indictment in July 2019. He faces sentencing in February 2022.
