    A Spring Lake man faces charges related to human trafficking after a woman he kept captive in his basement escaped and alerted authorities.

    Robin Triovel Applewhite, 38, of 310 Cedarwood Street in Spring Lake, was arrested and charged with human trafficking, second-degree kidnapping and sexual servitude after police said he held three women in his basement.

    Thanks Tulessa. I just came on to start a thread. I wonder if any of his victims have been reported as missing. At least one of them was held for several days.

    Sounds like this might have been going on for a while: http://www.wral.com/spring-lake-man-charged-with-human-trafficking/14523900/

    Wonder if convicted, will he like being a prisoner and possibly sexually abused? What goes around comes around.

    Thank God one of the women escaped and it led to the two others found! I hope these women can get help and live a good life now. They certainly deserve to.

    I'm glad this POS's bond was increased to over one million because $250,000 was not nearly high enough. May he spend a very long horrible time in prison. In fact, he doesn't deserve to ever be free again.
