Aaron Collins Pleads Not Guilty to Attempted Human Trafficking


One of the two men arrested for human trafficking in June plead not guilty today.

Aaron Collins and Bobby Abplanalp are both charged with attempted human trafficking.

Bismarck Police arrested the two men June 5th.

Bond was set at $50,000 cash and both men are still in custody at the Burleigh County Detention Center.

The crime is a class A felony, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and or a $10,000 fine.

Collins waived his right to a preliminary hearing this afternoon and plead not guilty to the crime.

"You're alleged to have attempted to attain another person for sex knowing that person would be subject to Human Trafficking and that person was less than 18 years of age," Judge Bruce Haskell said.

Abplanalp, the former sports editor at the Dickinson Press, will be in court for his preliminary hearing on August 5th.

Dustin Monke with the Press says Abplanalp was relieved of his duties after not showing up for work.
