Woman charged with sex trafficking

A federal grand jury in Rochester has returned a three-count indictment charging  Jodia Campbell, 32, of Rochester, with sex trafficking of a minor and transporting a minor across state lines to engage her in prostitution.

The charges carry a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum of life, and a fine of $250,000.

Rochester Police began investigating the alleged prostitution of a 16-year-old Rochester girl, using the name “Cherry Red” on backpage.com in Pennsylvania in April 2013.

According to the complaint, the girl alleged she was recruited by a woman named Jennifer Miller and taken to New Jersey and Pennsylvania to engage in prostitution by Jodia Campbell along with Jennifer Miller and Laree Greggs. Other adult individuals also alleged having been transported by Greggs, Miller and Campbell at various times, out of state, to prostitute. Investigators reviewed backpage.com ads and found contact information associated with Miller, Campbell and Greggs.

Jennifer Miller and Laree Greggs are charged in separate criminal complaints with similar charges.
