EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- Two men charged in connection with a sex trafficking sting in Eau Claire County appeared in court Tuesday.

Online court records show 38-year-old Mark Potts of Chippewa Falls pleaded not guilty to charges including use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime and child enticement.

43-year-old David Frank of St. Croix Falls was sentenced to six months in jail and five years probation.

Back in September, undercover officers placed ads on Craigslist either posing as a teen looking for sex or as an adult willing to traffic or sell a child for sex. The officers then met and arrested five area men.
