A Michigan man is facing charges after he was arrested late last week for allegedly sex-trafficking of two minors, federal law enforcement officials said.

Fabriel Delaney was arrested by FBI agents early Friday morning outside a hotel in south suburban Tinley Park where he allegedly brought three females, two of whom were under age 18, from Michigan for prostitution.

The charges allege that Delaney believed he was transporting the two girls and a young woman for commercial sex acts at a bachelor party, which instead, was a sting operation.

Delaney, also known as "Face," 25, of Kalamazoo, was charged with transporting a minor across state lines for prostitution.

in a complaint filed in U.S. District Court. The charge carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison.

The complaint alleges Delaney drove the three females from Kalamazoo to Tinley Park, where they were to engage in sexual activity with 10 to 12 men and charge between $150 and $300 per customer. The three victims are ages 16, 17 and 18. The 16- and 18-year-olds are sisters.

The 17-year-old told authorities she'd met Delaney a month earlier and had met with 20-24 customers, splitting the money with Delaney.

The investigation began in September 2010 when Delaney was stopped in Will County with three young women, one of which was also a victim found in the recent sting operation. They were allegedly sex-trafficking at a Joliet hotel. Delaney allegedly used various Internet web sites to advertise prostitution services. Delaney typically met customers in a hotel parking lot to ensure they were not undercover police before sending them to a victim's hotel room.
