A Connecticut man has been charged with two counts of sex trafficking of minors. United States Attorney John H. Durham announced Hartford had returned an indictment charging hiran Sanchez, who is also known by “Ivan” and “Pablo.”

The States US Attorney’s office was clear that an indictment does no mean guilt.

Sanchez,20, is accused of recruiting, harboring and transporting two minors to engage in commercial acts according to the release. He is accused of initially selling victim one on July 2016 and the other in May or April or May 2017.

This matter is being investigated by the Connecticut State Police and Hartford Police Department, through the Connecticut Human Trafficking Task Force, and with the assistance of Homeland Security Investigations. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Sarala V. Nagala and Nancy V. Gifford.

The charge of sex trafficking of a minor carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison with a maximum of life in prison.
