A Memphis man accused of sex trafficking women he met on social media returned to Erie County Court where his case has now been withdrawn.

Shavalis Johnson, 27, was scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday, Sept 13. He’s facing 13 felony counts — including human trafficking, promoting prostitution and kidnapping — after one of his alleged victims escaped in July and went to a store in Summit Township and called 911.

Johnson appeared before District Judge Brian McGowan where we learned his case has been withdrawn.

Office staff said no victims appeared for the preliminary hearing and Pennsylvania State Police can choose to refile as their next step.

Johnson allegedly traveled from state to state with victims, advertising their pictures and arraigning for the victims to perform sexual services on strangers for money.
