OTTAWA _ A 23-year-old Montreal man has been convicted on human trafficking charges in Ottawa.
It's the first time someone has been convicted under human trafficking laws in the country's capital since they were added to the Criminal Code in 2005.
Jamie Byron was accused of abducting a 17-year-old Windsor, Ont., girl from her home in 2011, and forcing her to perform sexual acts on more than 100 men over a two month period.
Byron was caught by an undercover Ottawa Police officer.
He is due back in court on Sept. 6 to set a sentencing date.
