Wisconsin man pleads guilty to human trafficking

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Madison man has pleaded guilty to three human trafficking charges.

Online court records show 40-year-old Lindy Gill pleaded to two counts of human trafficking and one count of receiving compensation for human trafficking in Dane County Circuit Court on Thursday. He also pleaded guilty to recklessly endangering safety in a separate case the same day.

He faces a total of 72 1/2 years in prison. Court records didn't indicate a sentencing date.

Prosecutors accused Gill in the human trafficking case of forcing a group of women into prostitution and taking all their profits. They accused him in the endangerment case of providing heroin to a 17-year-old boy resulting in his hospitalization.

Gill's attorney didn't immediately return an email message Friday afternoon.
