Three accused of forcing 19-year-old to engage in sex acts

GORHAM, Maine — Three people from Gorham have been arrested on sex trafficking charges, the Cumberland County District Attorney’s Office said.

Klein Fernandes, 27, Tamika Dias, 34, and Jeremy Seeley, 32, are accused of exploiting a 19-year-old woman and requiring her to engage in commercial sex acts.

The District Attorney’s Office said the victim was posted on the website by Dias and taken to several locations in Cumberland, York and Androscoggin counties by Fernandes and Seeley to engage sex acts with strangers.

Investigators said the victim fled from the defendants when she was told that she might be sold to a “pimp” from Boston.

Police said they were notified with the help of the Preble Street Teen Center in Portland.

Police searched the home Fernandes, Dias and Seeley shared on Woodland Road in Gorham on Friday. The DA’s office said all three admitted to exploiting the woman for money.

Dias and Fernandes were each charged with two counts of aggravated sex trafficking.

Seeley was charged with two counts of sex trafficking.

All three are due in court on Wednesday.
