BELOIT, Wis. (WFRV) – A 41-year-old man from southern Wisconsin could get up to 75 years in prison after being found guilty of several offenses.

According to a release from the Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ), a jury found Ieem Currie from Beloit guilty of the following charges:

  • Human Trafficking, Repeater
    • Felony
  • Neglect of a Child, Repeater
    • Misdemeanor
  • Keeping a Place of Prostitution, Repeater
    • Felony
  • Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place, Repeater
