CINCINNATI (AP) - Two men accused of sex trafficking have been indicted by a federal grand jury in Cincinnati.

Federal authorities say 48-year-old Anthony Lee Brown and 25-year-old Christopher Combs were indicted last week in U.S. District Court. They were each indicted on a charge of coercion and enticement and a charge of transportation of individuals to engage in prostitution.

Brown’s attorney didn’t immediately return a message left Monday. Combs’ attorney declined to comment.

The indictment alleges the men used a means of interstate commerce to coerce and entice individuals to engage in sexual activity from around Oct. 7 through Nov. 18. Authorities say the two transported individuals from Ohio to Kentucky and elsewhere to engage in prostitution.

The men could get up to 30 years in prison if convicted of both charges.
