Human Trafficking Arrest

A Tennessee man is in jail in Lexington, after being charged with human trafficking.

45-year-old Calvin Walker was arrested yesterday morning at the Catalina Motel and charged with two counts of human trafficking for allegedly forcing two women to work at a local strip club, then taking their money.

The women say he lured them here from Tennessee, then when they tried to leave, he took their identification and their money.

Walker pleaded not guilty in court Thursday, and will be back in District Court next week. He's facing a Class C Felony, which is punishable by 5 to 10 years in prison.

    Why, for the love of God, does this now have to become a race issue?

    This has to be an "injustice." Where is Al Sharpton and his cronies to protect this poor misunderstood man? He was only trying to make an honest living. All who think he's being singled out and the courts should give him a break stand up and say so.

    If corrupt employers that seek cheap labor were being prosecuted, this type of behavior wouldn't pay off for criminals such as this.
