A Texas woman has been indicted in Calcasieu Parish on multiple charges involving sex trafficking.
Amber Nicole Manning, 35, of Beaumont was arrested on the charges March 16 at a local casino.
Manning was recently indicted on the following charges: trafficking of children for sexual purposes, contributing to the delinquency of juveniles, pornography involving juveniles, two counts of promoting prostitution and enticing persons into prostitution.
"Human trafficking and child trafficking is the most common form of modern-day slavery and is happening everywhere in the United States, including right here in our own community," District Attorney John DeRosier said. "This indictment sends a message to traffickers that we will not tolerate this activity in Calcasieu Parish."
"We intend to prosecute this case to the fullest extent that the law provides," he added.
The case was presented by prosecutor Jacob Johnson.
Louisiana State Police investigated the case before it was turned over to the District Attorney's office for prosecution.
Manning will stand trial on the charges although no trial date has been set.
Prosecutors said the trial is expected to be begin later this year.
