MORRIS COUNTY -

A Morris County jury has found a man guilty of giving heroin to two juvenile females, and then enticing them to engage in sexual acts inside two New Jersey hotels.

Aldophus Mims, 42, of Charlotte, North Carolina, was found guilty of human trafficking, promoting prostitution of two minors, sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and distribution of heroin.

The incidents happened back in June of 2015.

According to prosecutors, Mims gave the heroin to the females, ages 15 and 17.

Prosecutors say Mims then enticed them to engage in sexual acts in hotels in Rockaway Township and Parsippany. Mims would then collect the money received after the sexual acts were completed.

The trial was the first human trafficking case of a minor in the history of Morris County.

Mims faces life in prison when he's sentenced.
