Christina Ann Jackson, 38, of Boise, pleaded not guilty on Nov. 21 to an indictment charging her with three counts of transportation of a person with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, the Billings Gazette reported earlier today.
She is accused of three counts of bringing women to Montana for prostitution activity — one in June 2014. A second alleges Jackson brought two people to Montana and North Dakota for prostitution in August 2014, and a third count accuses Jackson of bringing a person for prostitution to Montana in September 2014.
If convicted, Jackson could receive a up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Jackson will be tried in Montana Federal Court. U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Cavan released Jackson pending trial, which is set for Jan. 22 before U.S. District Judge Susan Watters.
