No bond for South Dakota sex trafficking suspect

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- A Chicago native facing federal sex trafficking and prostitution charges in South Dakota has been ordered held without bond.

Thirty-five-year-old Carl Campbell appeared in U.S. District Court in Sioux Falls on Monday. The media reports that his attorney, Jeff Larsen, did not seek his client's release.

Judge John Simko cited Campbell's history of "significant criminal charges," including several warrants for failing to appear in court.

Campbell is accused of using force or the threat of force to coerce a woman into prostitution. It is the second alleged sex trafficking case in Sioux Falls this year. Thirty-four-year-old Tajahn Clinton pleaded not guilty in February in a case that authorities say involved children.
