"It's very disturbing," said neighbor Kelly Davis. "With it being so close to a school, a middle school right up the street, and my kids being next door of teenage years, it's just worrisome."

Prosecutors said the victims were trafficked between 2004 and 2018. Mahan is also accused of using force, fraud and coercion and transporting the victims to a dozen states with the "intent they engage in prostitution."

"They all came charging with a shield and pushed me off to the side and told me to stay out of the way," the neighbor said.

Mahan has been arraigned on the charges and is in jail until her trial. The judge cited her history of "physical violence, intimidation, and exploitation."
