FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A grand jury has indicted an Alaska woman on seven felonies related to a prostitution ring she allegedly operated between Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai and Juneau.
Prosecutors said Friday that Amber L. Batts, 39, of Anchorage, was charged with three counts of second-degree sex trafficking and four counts of third-degree sex trafficking. She was indicted on Wednesday.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Batts allegedly supervised an online system that marketed women for sex acts throughout Alaska.
Authorities say Butts got a cut of the money exchanged for the sex acts. Batts was arrested July 9.
