Couple pleads guilty to sex trafficking child

- Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say a New York City couple has admitted to the human trafficking of a child.

Richard Ortiz and Gabriella Colon, both of the Bronx, New York, pleaded guilty Thursday to a conspiracy count. Both could face a life term when they are sentenced in May.

Prosecutors say Ortiz and Colon recruited and enticed the child, and posted the youth's photos on a website advertising the child for sexual services. The couple also admitted collecting money from numerous people who paid to have sexual relations with the child.

Prosecutors have not disclosed information about the child, including their age or gender.
