Authorities say a sixth man is suspected of having sex with an underage girl in Kearney in a child prostitution ring allegedly run by a Nebraska woman who's charged with prostituting her two daughters.

Zachary Schmidt, of North Platte, is charged in Buffalo County with first degree sexual assault of a child. Defense attorney Michael Carper declined to comment on Wednesday

Schmidt and five other men are accused of having sex with the girl after it was arranged by a woman who's accused of prostituting her 14-year-old and 7-year-old daughters. The woman faces charges in Buffalo, Franklin and Furnas counties.

10/11 is not using the woman's name to protect the privacy of her daughters.
