Man accused of sex trafficking in 9 states, including Wisconsin, is arrested

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.

The complaint said Brown’s human trafficking operation expanded beyond Wisconsin, and that he posted 225 advertisements for prostitution services in Alabama, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Texas and Wisconsin.

Women were coerced into sexual relationships with "johns" and Brown made money off the crimes. 

Brown was arrested August 7 and is being held by the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office
