A Boston man has pleaded guilty to charges of sex trafficking in Maine.

WMTW-TV reports that 37-year-old Rashad Sabree was accused of using the heroin addictions of two women to coerce them into having sex for money. Court documents say that he would supply the women with a small amount of the drug and then threaten to cut them off and/or physically harm them if they didn't cooperate.

The crimes allegedly happened between December 2015 and January 2016, which is when he was arrested while driving south on I-95. Another motorist saw Sabree hit one of the women and called 911.

The national human trafficking hotline is 1-888-373-7888. More information about human trafficking can be found on the Maine Sex Trafficking and Exploitation Network's website.
