Convicted sex trafficker charged again with same crime
The first man ever to be convicted in Cook County of sex trafficking has been arrested again for the same crime.
Myrelle Lockett, 20, is accused of taking an 18-year-old girl from Minnesota to Chicago and planning to force her to work as a prostitute.
Authorities say Lockett first connected with the girl on social media then traveled with his twin brother, Tyrelle, to Minnesota and forced the girl to drive with them back to Chicago.
The twins brought the girl to their father’s home on the South Side, but she was able to escape.
Myrelle and Tyrelle Lockett were both convicted of sex trafficking in 2011.
Their father, Nathan Nicholson, faces indictment for promoting prostitution.
