The prosecutor’s office said from March through May of this year, Barron forced a woman to prostitute herself from two hotels in Mason and one in Blue Ash, Ohio.

The indictment went on to say that Baron posted photographs of women online and offered prostitution services.

Fornshell said, "The perpetrators would force the women to engage in sexual activity against their will if they refused, the perpetrators would beat, torture and threaten them. And, these victims rarely report their situation to law enforcement because the perpetrators have convinced them, “Who will believe you?”

Barron is expected to sentenced later this month.
