TOLEDO, OH (Press Release) -

A Toledo man was sentenced to 15 years in prison for sex trafficking of children, according to Steven Dettelbach, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.

Roy Calhoun, 30, was found guilty of multiple charges last year, including sex trafficking of children, conspiracy to obstruct a sex trafficking investigation and conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute Oxycodone.

"This defendant profited from children in the commercial sex trade," Dettelbach said. "Our office will continue to pursue human trafficking cases with vigor."

Calhoun was arrested in 2010 and accused of recruiting females, including minor children, to work as prostitutes between 2007 and 2010. According to court documents, he advertised a minor on Craigslist on different occasions and drove the minor to Toledo-area hotels. Calhoun beat and assaulted the females who worked for him and threatened those who left or attempted to quit working as prostitutes, according to court documents.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James Moroney, following an investigation by the Northwest Ohio Violent Crimes Against Children Task Force.

The task force includes members of the FBI, Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation, Toledo Police Department, Lima Police Department, Perrysburg Township Police Department, Fulton County Sheriff's Office and Ottawa County Sheriff's Office.
