Rhinelander woman faces child trafficking and prostitution chargesSubmitted: 07/02/2014
Story By Newswatch 12 Team

RHINELANDER - 46 year old Carrie Steinmetz faces three felonies surrounding child trafficking and prostitution.

Steinmetz was in court Wednesday. The Rhinelander woman originally faced one charge for having and selling meth. The other charges were added later.

The criminal complaint says a man brought a child to Steinmetz's home in February. That's where prosecutors say Steinmetz, 55-year-old Thomas Franz and 43-year-old Michael Johnson had sex with the young girl. The girl told an officer that "a lot of sex and drugs" happened.

Steinmetz waived her preliminary hearing Wednesday. The court found probable cause to go forward with the case. She'll be back in court later this month.
