A federal grand jury has indicted eight Portland men accused of transporting women across state lines to engage in prostitution.
One of the men is Mark "Meezilini" Miles, who is accused of taking Ivy Harris to Hawaii last spring. The 29-year-old Harris was killed during the visit and a Marine is awaiting trial on a murder charge. Her body was found near Yokohama Bay.
The indictments unsealed Monday stem from an FBI-led enforcement called "Operation Traffic Stop." Besides Hawaii, prosecutors say the prostitutes were taken to Alaska, Idaho, Minnesota and Nevada.
Also charged were: Steven "Flawless" Huffman, Jorge "Baby Slim" Ortega, Jermaine "Chocolate" Hankins, Michael "Mackin Mike" Willis, DeShawne "The Don" Howard, Samuel "Sammega" Howard and Camillio "Killa" Carradine.
