NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A key witness in a federal trial involving nine people accused of belonging to a Somali gang and sex-trafficking ring told jurors that she was taken to different apartments in suburban Minneapolis to have sex with men.
The young Somali woman is identified in court as Jane Doe No. 2. She cried on the witness stand Tuesday as she described the sexual acts she performed while in middle school and high school.
She called the sex acts "missions" and said the men never let her keep the money and that she was not allowed to question them.
Nine people are on trial this week in Nashville, but a total of 30 were indicted in the case that stretches from Minnesota to Ohio and Tennessee.
