BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Missouri man is accused of offering a woman for prostitution in a Bismarck hotel.

Sixty-seven-year-old Marvin Lord was charged Friday with facilitating prostitution. The 41-year-old woman, whom police say may be a victim of human trafficking, was arrested for prostitution.

Authorities say the woman came to the United States on a visa from China. She and Lord claim to be married.

Police were called after employees at the hotel noticed a man hanging out in the lobby, meeting men and taking them to a room, then waiting in the lobby while the men were in the room.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1bzcnqt ) that Lord told a judge he had been in Bismarck “a little over a week.” Authorities say he doesn’t appear to have a criminal history.
