FBI: Fugitive charged with sex trafficking minor arrested in San Francisco
Julia Lynn Haner

PORTLAND, Ore. – The FBI says a former Lake Oswego cheerleader who was indicted on sex trafficking charges in April has been arrested in San Francisco for the same crime.

Julia Lynn Haner, 19, was living in the Portland area during the legal proceedings, the FBI said. She removed her ankle monitoring device and disappeared back in June.

Haner was indicted on charges related to sex trafficking of a minor. Police said she recruited a 17-year-old girl from the high school to work as a prostitute. Prosecutors said Haner got into prostitution after high school and reached out to the 17-year-old through Facebook.

San Francisco police on Monday arrested Haner on charges of sex trafficking of a minor and possession of a concealed weapon.

It’s unclear when she will return to Oregon to face charges.
