A federal grand jury has returned a nine-count indictment charging a man and a woman from Buffalo with sex trafficking.

The indictment charges Kenneth White, 37, with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking, sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion and sex trafficking of a minor.

Caitlin Connelly, 29, was charged with conspiring with White to engage in sex trafficking.

Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Rogowski said White and Connelly worked together between 2004 and last year to cause five victims to engage in commercial sex acts.

The indictment is the result of an investigation by the FBI and Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigations Division.
