BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Milwaukee woman is charged with felony human trafficking on the North Dakota oil patch.

Authorities say Shakira McClinton was arrested in Minot earlier this week after another woman accused McClinton of assaulting her. The woman who made the complaint said she and McClinton were working as prostitutes.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled June 11. McClinton faces 20 years in prison.

Minot Police Capt. John Kluge tells the Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1DWxsHS) that there’s a high demand for prostitutes in the oil patch and police could hold stings every day and still make arrests.

Court documents do not list an attorney for McClinton.
