2 indicted on charges of sex trafficking child

JACKSON, Miss. —  

A federal grand jury in Mississippi has indicted two men on charges of sexually assaulting a 3- or 4-year-old girl and recording it.

Marco Laquin Rogers and Jeremy Atral Hodges were indicted on sex trafficking charges Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Jackson. A criminal complaint filed against Rogers in October said they both had sex with the child at a Jackson hotel on May 26.

Court records say Hodges and Rogers are from Mississippi, but Rogers had been living in Atlanta and Hodges was living in Cambridge, Mass.

Court records say the investigation began after Hodges showed another man in Massachusetts a video of the assault. That man called police.

Rogers' lawyer didn't immediately return a call on Friday. It wasn't clear who is representing Hodges.
