"It may have helped that Miner does not fit the stereotype of a sex trafficker, Johnson said. Even in his mug shot, he looks like an average guy, bookish and wearing glasses.

'This is not the guy you would ever assume would be a trafficker, far from it,” she said. “This is the guy that girls would fall for. He looks like a clean cut, nerdy, geeky guy.'
