Trial date set for Omaha man accused of child sex trafficking
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - An Omaha man accused of child sex trafficking will soon be going to trial.
Rolando Midder, 43, appeared in federal court in Omaha Monday morning and a trial date was set for June 5.
Arrested last year, Midder is charged with sex trafficking of minors and by force by coercion.
Court documents indicated an FBI special agent was on a website used for prostitution and recognized a 16-year-old girl who was pictured on it. Omaha Police joined the case and a date was arranged through the website. Several hours later, Midder was arrested at a hotel near 108th and L Street.
A child was also at the scene and allegedly told police Midder was violent with her.
If convicted, Midder faces 15 years to life in prison.
