Two Fall River residents have been indicted in connection with a human trafficking ring on the SouthCoast  Attorney General Martha Coakley announced Friday that 38 year old Olivia “Missy” Lara was indicted by a Bristol County grand jury on three counts of trafficking in persons under the age of 18 for sexual servitude.  30 year old Feliciano  Ramirez was also indicted on one count of rape of a child.

Attorney General Coakley said in a statement that her office alleges that Lara exploited and sold children for sex, sometimes up to five times a night, and profited from that activity.  Ramirez allegedly raped a child that Lara was providing to her customers.

The A-G’s office says the investigation began when the New Bedford Police Department tipped off Homeland Security that a woman was trafficking underage girls for sexual purposes.

Both Lara and Ramirez were arrested in January and are being held on bail.  They will be arraigned in Superior Court at a later date.
