One of two men accused of being part of a Danbury-based sex trafficking ring was in court Friday. The Newstimes reports that William Trefzger's attorney was given nearly a dozen disks of evidence by prosecutors as part of the discovery process.
Trefzger and Bruce Bemer were charged in March with patronizing a trafficked person. Bemer is due in court May 30th. The alleged mastermind of the ring is Robert King.
Police say they exploited young men with mental health issues. Authorities say the men were plied with drugs and money and delivered to wealthy clients to have sex for money after they had built up substantial drug debts.
Police have identified at least 15 victims.
King is due in court Wednesday.
