SD sex trafficking suspects face more charges

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- Two South Dakota men facing sex trafficking charges in federal court had pleaded not guilty to additional charges.

The media reports that the new charges follow unsuccessful attempts by defense lawyers for 36-year-old Carl Campbell and 35-year-old Tajahn Clinton to withhold evidence of alleged online sex trafficking discovered on computers and cellphones seized by authorities.

Clinton was indicted in February, and Campbell in April. Both could face life in prison if convicted.

An Associated Press news brief about the case did not include information about where the men reside or where the crimes took place.
