A Billings woman faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine after she pleaded guilty Thursday to taking three people to a bus station in town for a trip to Georgia to engage in commercial sex.

Destiny Lachelle Nilsen, 26, changed her plea to charges of transportation of a person with the intent to engage in prostitution following her arrest with three others in March. The arrests involved the alleged coercion of 18 women into commercial sex work. Louis Gregory Venning, a co-defendant in Nilsen’s case, is accused of trafficking nine women in Montana, Wyoming, Tennessee, Georgia, and Missouri.
