Guilty plea from River Falls man accused of forcing woman to stream on Only Fans, other sexual sites

He also pleaded guilty to a count involving sex trafficking of an underage girl

A western Wisconsin man has pleaded guilty in connection with allegations that he kept a woman captive in his home, forced her to appear on sexually explicit websites such as Only Fans and then kept the money being paid by viewers.

Austin Koeckeritz, 29, of River Falls, admitted in U.S. District Court to sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion. Koeckeritz also pleaded guilty to trafficking of a minor stemming from accusations that he sexually exploited a girl who was 14 or 15 years old at the time.

"Sex trafficking continues to be prevalent because traffickers see the profits they can make from exploiting the vulnerable victims they target," Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division said in a statement issued after the guilty pleas were entered.
