SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah man who testified that he served as the getaway driver during a fatal robbery 20 years ago is facing new exploitation of a prostitute and human trafficking charges.

The Utah Attorney General’s Office said Friday that 37-year-old Todd Jeremy Rettenberger forced two women into prostitution and took them to Oregon for liaisons in January and February.

Prosecutors say one woman reported meeting Rettenberger when they both worked at an Arctic Circle restaurant, and the other said she started working for him because he supplied her with heroin.

Prosecutors say they found a photo of a “Pimping for Dummies” book cover in a search of his phone.

Rettenberger pleaded guilty to a manslaughter charge in the 1996 death of a Motel 6 clerk.

No attorney was immediately listed for him in court records.
