Suspects In Texas Prostitution Ring Re-Arraigned

EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Several suspects accused of forcing women into prostitution in West Texas are facing more serious charges in the case.

Seven of the 10 people linked to the ring will be re-arraigned Thursday in El Paso, more than a month after they were arrested in Baltimore and extradited to Texas. A grand jury returned a superseding indictment in the case last week.

The suspects are charged with sex trafficking induced by force, fraud or coercion and conspiracy to transport for prostitution. One of them has already been re-arraigned and two others remain in Baltimore.

Authorities say Alarcon Wiggins, a self-proclaimed recording artist, used his ties to the music industry to entice women to move to El Paso and force them into his prostitution scheme.
