APPLETON, Wis. (WFRV) – A Milwaukee man arrested by Appleton Police for human trafficking and trafficking of a child has been bound over for trial in Outagamie County Court.

According to court records, 35-year-old Theodore Givings appeared for his preliminary hearing on Monday.

Givings was arrested in January after Appleton Police say they had been investigating him for a significant period of time.

Investigators reportedly established enough probable cause to take Givings into custody for attempting to lure away a “juvenile runaway into the world of Human Trafficking.”

Givings is scheduled to appear in court again in March.
