A man has been charged a second time with sex trafficking offenses after authorities say he forced a Minnesota girl to travel to Chicago to work as a prostitute.
Myrelle Lockett, 20, is charged with Aggravated Trafficking in Persons, Involuntary Servitude and Kidnapping.
Officials say Lockett made contact with the 18-year-old girl through social media and went to Minnesota to meet her.
The girl says Lockett drove her back to Chicago against her will, and police began looking for her after she sent text messages saying she was taken against her will.
The teen reportedly called 911 after escaping from a South Side home Saturday night and Lockett was arrested shortly afterward.
Authorities say Lockett and his twin brother, Tyrelle, were sentenced to four years in prison in 2011 for sex trafficking involving two females. The convictions were the first in Illinois for human trafficking offenses, according to the State's Attorney's Office.
Bond was denied for the suspect.
