FAIRBANKS, Alaska — A grand jury has indicted an Alaska woman on seven felonies related to a prostitution ring she allegedly operated between Anchorage, Fairbanks, Kenai and Juneau.

Prosecutors said Friday that 39-year-old Amber L. Batts of Anchorage was charged with three counts of second-degree sex trafficking and four counts of third-degree sex trafficking. She was indicted on Wednesday.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (http://bit.ly/1AkeiOb ) Batts allegedly supervised an online system that marketed women for sex acts throughout Alaska.

Authorities say Butts got a cut of the money exchanged for the sex acts. Batts was arrested on July 9.
