      Columbia man indicted by federal grand jury for sex trafficking

      A Columbia man has been indicted by a federal grand jury accused of sex trafficking two victims, one of them a minor.

      On Wednesday, 33-year-old Kenyata Miles was charged in a two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City.

      He faces one count of sex trafficking and one count of the attempted sex trafficking of a child.

      Miles was arrested in June 2013 by the Boone County Sheriff's Department Cyber Crimes Task Force and the Boone County Sheriff's Department after an investigation into on-line prostitution.
