Man arrested on sex trafficking charges to appear in court

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A 21-year-old man accused of sex trafficking a 17-year-old girl at a Motel 6 on Jefferson Avenue in Warwick will appear in court Monday.

Adolfo Hernandez has been charged with sex trafficking of a minor and possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine.

Police said they were tipped off after Hernandez allegedly advertised the teen for sex online.

Warwick police have responded to more than one thousand calls of crime-related activity last year, which netted 75 arrests at the Motel 6.

The minor was reported missing from the Emerald Square Mall in Attleboro.

Hernandez will be in court for a bail hearing.
