Reynoldsburg Man Sentenced For Human Trafficking

Reynoldsburg Police

Prosecutors say a Reynoldsburg man has become the first Franklin County resident to be sentenced to prison time for human trafficking. 34-year-old Thomas Williamson will serve 15 years in prison for conducting a plot with his finace to kidnap women by luring them to his home with a bogus profile on an internet dating site. Prosecutors say Williamson and 31-year-old Michelle Feldman forced the victims to find jobs and turn the paychecks over to them. Feldman will be sentenced on Thursday. The couple also abused the victims sexually and verbally.
