Couple accused of attempted sex trafficking of teens in Ottawa Co.

JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A West Michigan couple has been charged for allegedly trying to solicit minors for sex.

The investigation started when a concerned parent spoke with an Ottawa County sheriff’s deputy about the couple’s alleged suspicious behavior. Anuj Chopra and his wife Leslie Chopra allegedly meet the victims through the couple’s 16-year-old daughter, according to an Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department news release.

Anuj, 41, was charged Wednesday with human trafficking for allegedly trying to get 16- and 17-year-old boys to engage in sex acts for money. According to court documents obtained by 24 Hour News 8, he offered them $100 during a conversation at the couple’s home and said he would videotape the sex acts.
