BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Federal prosecutors have added an additional count against a man who was featured in a documentary in the North Dakota oil patch and now faces sex trafficking and drug charges.

An updated indictment charges Keith Graves with seven counts of sex trafficking by force or coercion, or one count for each alleged victim. He also is charged with obstruction, distribution of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance.

Court documents accuse Graves of beating some of his victims and forcing at least one woman to perform sex acts on him.

Graves was one of the main subjects in “The Overnighters,” which won the special jury award at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. It followed a Lutheran pastor who opened his Williston church to oil workers with nowhere to stay.
