A Rochester man has been charged with two counts of trying to engage and sell a minor for sex. The victim told investigators he had been meeting her in very public locations on multiple occasions.
The criminal complaint says a Rochester investigator was assigned an endangered, missing persons case for a completely separate sex-trafficking crime, but in talking to this 15 year-old victim, investigators say a new name, "Tyler" came up.
Investigators later identified him as 45 year-old Tyler Glynn, from Rochester. The complaint says he would meet the 15 year-old in downtown Rochester on a regular basis. He's then accused of asking her to work for him, or as Olmsted County Attorney Mark Ostrem says in simple terms, he was asking to "pimp her out."
Investigators say they have enough evidence, including searching phone records, to charge Glynn. "The most serious offence is a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, the second offense is a maximum of three years in prison. They're both felonies, they’re just different severity levels," said Ostrem.
Glynn has yet to appear in court, but is expected to next month.
