An Evansville man accused of human trafficking now faces federal charges.

A grand jury indicted 31 year-old Jathar Williams for allegedly recruiting two minors to engage in sex acts for money.
Henderson Police say the girls were runaways and were coerced into prostitution.

They were caught in March, with two men in a room at the Sugar Creek Inn on US-41.

If convicted, Williams faces at least ten years in prison.
