An Oklahoma City couple have been named in a grand jury indictment handed down Friday in federal court in Tulsa.

The indictment accuses Ronald Spivey, 47, and Kimberly Haven, 25, of being involved in a "sex trafficking business with the intent to recruit and prostitute children under the age of 17."

The couple was arrested by Tulsa Police on July 30 outside a local restaurant.

A Tulsa Police report states an officer put an entry on a classified ad web site, then received a text "asking me to go to Florida or Vegas and make money." The officer responded saying he was a 17-year-old female and was "cool with that." The report says the officer set up a meeting and arrested Spivey and Haven when they arrived.

US Attorney Danny C Williams for the Northern District of Oklahoma says if convicted, Spivey would face a minimum of 10 years in prison and up to a $500,000 fine and Haven would face a maximum of five years in prison and up to $250,000 fine.

Both are being held in the Tulsa County jail.
