A Pocatello man accused of pimping out a teenager in at least two states wavied his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday.

That means Jonathan Massoletti's case is headed to District Court and likely to trial unless a plea deal is reached.

Massoletti was arrested on January 6, 2014, in Jackson, WY, on suspicion of driving under the influence. Three other people were with Massoletti at the time of his arrest. During the course of that investigation, police learned that one of those people, an 18-year-old woman, may be working for Massoletti as a prostitute.

Court documents reveal Massoletti arranged around 100 sexual encounters for the woman, many of those in Jackson, others in Washington state.

Massoletti now faces charges of human trafficking. He could also face federal charges in this case.

Massoletti could spend between five and 50 years in prison if convicted.
