MIAMI – A man accused of coming to Miami Beach ahead of the Super Bowl and trafficking a 17-year-old online for sex has been arrested.
Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle announced the arrest of Anthony Bernard Carter, 28, Friday after an investigation that involved several local and federal agencies.
Prosecutors say Carter and the 17-year-old are from Georgia but were down in South Florida ahead of this year’s Super Bowl when detectives were conducting an undercover operation to uncover sex trafficking.
Miami Beach detectives looked through online escort postings and said they found evidence connecting Carter to the sale of the 17-year-old for sexual services.
