WILSON COUNT, Tenn. (WKRN) – Two men were arrested Monday by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in connection with an ongoing human trafficking investigation.

James Harris, 55, and James Green Jr., 43, were booked into the Wilson County jail on $2,500 bond.

Agents with TBI began investigating the case involving a minor female victim in August 2012.

During the investigation, they developed information that Harris and Green both engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim on Sept. 4, 2011.

On Jan. 5 of this year, a grand jury indicted Harris with six counts of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and Green with one count of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

Both men, of Georgia, were previously indicted in June 2014 on charges of aggravated statutory rape stemming from the same incident.
