BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A 34-year-old Missoula man with a previous state conviction for promoting prostitution has denied federal charges that allege he forced two women into sex trafficking.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/2eEyPs2 ) Terrance Tyrell Edwards pleaded not guilty Monday to two counts of sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion; three counts of transportation of a minor with intent to engage in prostitution and one count of obstructing a sex trafficking investigation. He remains jailed without bond.

Edwards was arrested in Billings on Sept. 21 after a woman called police with the phone Edwards had apparently given her for customer calls.

Prosecutors allege Edwards had lured two women into sex trafficking and had just returned to Billings with three teenage girls from the Midwest when he was arrested.
