Brittany Walters (WHO-HD)

POLK COUNTY, Iowa — A pre-trial hearing for an Illinois woman charged with human trafficking in Ankeny has been delayed until next week.

Brittany Walters, 25, was arrested back in July after a newspaper carrier found and helped one of her victims.

Walters is charged with two counts of pimping and two counts of human trafficking.

Investigators say she set up times, dates, and locations for men to meet with the victims and pay for sex. She allegedly transported four women across state lines for sex at the Quality Inn in Ankeny.

The pre-trial hearing will now be held Oct. 17th at 10:45 a.m.

Walters is scheduled to go to trial on Nov. 11th.
