BATON ROUGE - U. S. Attorneys unsealed a federal indictment Wednesday which accuses a Baton Rouge woman of trafficking a minor for sex.

A federal grand jury indicted 36-year-old Kellie M. Dominique with sex trafficking of a minor, attempted sex trafficking of a minor, obstruction of justice and four counts of using an interstate facility to aid in racketeering.

The indictment accused Dominique of running a prostitution business out of her home on the website "backpage.com," and had minors who worked as prostitutes post ads for sex acts on the website.

The U. S. Attorney's Office said the case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 to fight child sexual exploitation and abuse.
