Three Utica residents are now looking at federal charges for their alleged sex trafficking of a child.

State police arrested brother and sister Edward and Lynette Tilden, along with Alexandria Davall in November as part of a sex trafficking ring. The three are now accused of selling a minor for sexual acts in exchange for money and drugs. The minor was a runaway that the Tildens convinced they could help. That turned into drug addiction and a life of prostitution. All three face sentences of 10 years to life if convicted.
