File Photo

SIOUX FALLS – Federal jurors have convicted a man accused of coercing women into the sex trade in southeastern South Dakota .

The Argus Leader reports that 37-year-old Carl Campbell was convicted of sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion, two counts of sex trafficking of a child, interstate transportation for prostitution and obstruction of sex trafficking enforcement.

Prosecutors argued that Campbell was skilled in finding and preying upon troubled and vulnerable girls.

The jury deliberated just under four hours before reaching its verdict Friday.

Sex trafficking by force and sex trafficking of a minor carry mandatory minimum sentences of 10 to 15 years in federal prison.

Campbell told Judge Karen Schreier that he wanted to appeal but was told he’d need to wait until after his sentencing.
