BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy announced 51-year-old Oliver Kimmons, of Lockport, pleaded guilty to five counts of sex trafficking Thursday.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorneys Meghan A. Tokash, Douglas A.C. Penrose and Joel L. Violanti, over the course of three years Kimmons solicited young and coerced opiate-addicted women to have sex with paying customers in exchange for drugs.

Kimmons drove the victims to Western New York farms, dairies and Indian reservations to engage in sex acts, collected money from the customers and then "paid" the victims in heroin.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office Kimmons also had sex with the victims in exchange for drugs.

Kimmons is due back in court for sentencing in August.
