NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A witness in a federal trial concerning nine people involved in sex trafficking tells jurors she was solicited for sex in apartments in Minneapolis.

As reported by ABC News, the young woman testified Monday that at 12-years-old, she was expected to sexually service gang members for free.

They also report she told jurors gang members used force to lead the 6th grader into sex trafficking between Nashville and Minneapolis.

According to the Associated Press via Star Tribune, the young woman is one of four unidentified Sdomali female victims listed in the originally, unsealed indictment in 2010. The majority indicted were of Somali descent, and were members or associates of three Somali gangs: the Somali Outlaws, the Somali Mafia, and the Lady Outlaws.
