COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) --A father and son are facing federal charges of sex trafficking involving a child and transporting women for prostitution in exchange for heroin.

According to the Ohio Attorney General's Office, Keith Arrick Sr., 46, of Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, and Keith Arrick Jr.,21, of Lima were indicted on charges that included conspiracy to commit sex trafficking.

The indictment says the pair took the juvenile and the women to Columbus hotels and advertised them as prostitutes on the Internet.

The older Arrick is accused of giving the women heroin in exchange for prostituting themselves and threatened to kill them if they tried to leave.

Both were in jail in Columbus.
