Seatbelt stop leads to rape, sex trafficking charges

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

A Memphis man is behind bars, charged with statutory rape and sex trafficking.

Police say they stopped Cartez Horne on Friday at Levi and Leech Road because he wasn't wearing his seatbelt.

They found a 16 year old girl in the car.

The girl told police she had been in a sexual relationship with 23-year-old Horne for three months.

Horne confessed to the relationship, and even said he set up a Craigslist page for the teenager to have sex with other men to make money, "because they were broke".

Horne is being held on 100-thousand dollars bond.
