Madison (WQOW) – Attorney General Brad Schimel announced Glenwood Brown Jr. of Chicago was arrested on human trafficking charges in at least nine states.
According to the criminal complaint filed in Outagamie County, Brown allegedly trafficked two young women out of hotel rooms in Appleton and Grand Chute using the website Backpage.com.
