OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City man, Milton Shelton, is found guilty of human trafficking. In Judge Timothy Henderson’s courtroom, the jury returned with a guilty verdict on Wednesday.

In the summer of 2016, an undercover Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics agent rescued two women who claim they were forced into prostitution by Shelton. The women were taken into protective custody after the operation.

OBN said the prostitutes said their pimp threatened to do bodily harm to them if they didn’t continue to make money for him.

Milton Shelton’s trial resumes on Thursday morning.
