MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man and woman were indicted in connection with sex trafficking of three women in 2017.
Cedric Fleming and Tiffany Jones were both indicted for the crimes that investigators said happened in July of 2017, according to Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich.
The DA’s office said Fleming is facing more charges than Jones due to his involvement in attempting to “benefit from (the victims’) provision of a commercial sex act.”
