Ohio physician faces charges of sex trafficking minors

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say an Ohio emergency room physician who allegedly paid three girls between the ages of 12 and 14 for sex and a 15-year-old girl to pose in a pornographic cellphone video faces federal charges.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Cleveland said Friday a federal task force began investigating 52-year-old Albert Aiad-Toss, of Canfield, after the mother of a 13-year-old girl told Ashland police in June her daughter and other girls were having sex with him for money.

An affidavit says Aiad-Toss let the girls use his SUV.

Aiad-Toss faces four counts of sex trafficking of a minor and one count of producing child pornography.

Court records don’t indicate whether Aiad-Toss has an attorney. He reportedly worked at a hospital in the Youngstown area.
