Seven Men Arrested On Underage Sex Charges

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Federal, state and Rapid City authorities say they’ve arrested seven men on charges of trying to pay for sex with underage girls after responding to online classified ads placed during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

Records show that 29-year-old Scott Faulk, of Grand Junction, Colo. 19-year-old Miguel Aguilar, of Brighton, Colo., 43-year-old Michael Francis Fox Jr., of Owings, Md., and 54-year-old Timothy Gravens of Grapevine, Texas, were each charged in U.S. District Court with attempting to entice a person under 18 into a commercial sex act.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says three Rapid City men were also arrested: 31-year-old Jerry Lane Golliher, 27-year-old Eric D. Murphy and 24-year-old John Miller.

An FBI agent’s affidavit says investigators placed multiple advertisements on two websites offering young girls for prostitution.
