MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A Shelby County grand jury indicted a couple on sex trafficking charges Friday.

According to investigators, Jimmy Bryant Jr., 30, and Brittaney Ball, 25, posted provocative photos of a 15-year-old girl on the internet asking customers to pay to have sex with the girl.

Bryant and Ball were indicted on two felony counts of trafficking for sexual servitude.

Bryant was released on a $100,000 bond and Ball was released on a $75,000 bond.
