Troopers arrested woman on charges she marketed women for sex throughout Alaska


ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers have arrested an Anchorage woman on charges she trafficked women for sex in Alaska's largest communities.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports ( 39-year-old Amber L. Batts was arrested Wednesday on four counts of sex trafficking. She was being held on $15,000 bail. Online court records didn't list an attorney for her on Wednesday.

Troopers allege Batts supervised an online system that marketed women for sex acts in Anchorage, Fairbanks Juneau, the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and the Kenai Peninsula.

Authorities say money was exchanged for sex acts, and they allege Batts got a cut of it. Troopers served two warrants Wednesday, one at Batts' home and the other at an apartment where sex acts are alleged to have taken place between the women and their customers.
