DAYTON, Ohio — Two people from Dayton have been indicted on charges related to human trafficking involving a pair of 15-year-old girls.

Dayton police say the arrests were made after the one of the girls told a school counselor that she and another girl were forced to perform sex acts and pose for explicit photos.

A grand jury on Friday indicted 20-year-old Iesha Heard and 31-year-old Jermar White on trafficking and other felony charges. White also was charged with rape.

Court records don’t indicate whether either have an attorney. Both were being held in jail.

The Dayton Daily News reports that one of the girls said she was approached by the suspects to prostitute herself on a website.

Court records say photos of the girls were posted to set up dates.
