An Idaho woman accused of bringing other women to Montana and North Dakota for prostitution has denied federal charges in Billings.
Christina Ann Jackson, 38, of Boise, pleaded not guilty on Nov. 21 to an indictment charging her with three counts of transportation of a person with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
Prosecutors allege Jackson brought a person to Montana for prostitution activity in June 2014. A second count alleges Jackson brought two people to Montana and North Dakota for prostitution in August 2014, and a third count accuses Jackson of bringing a person for prostitution to Montana in September 2014.
If convicted, Jackson faces a maximum 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Cavan released Jackson pending trial. U.S. District Judge Susan Watters will hear the case.
