BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- A 54-year-old Hyde Park man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for his role in an alleged conspiracy to bring women from New York to Vermont dairy farms where they would engage in prostitution with farm workers.

The indictment filed Friday at U.S. District Court in Burlington claims Alejandro Enrique Young-Hernandez gave telephone numbers and addresses of farm workers to another man who would bring the women to the farms.

Federal investigators claim the prostitution operation allegedly operated during a six-month span beginning in October 2010.

The Burlington Free Press (http://bit.ly/pfjQ2Q ) reports the sexual acts were said to have occurred while Young-Hernandez and the other man waited outside.

Court papers said the farm workers paid $60 for the sexual services.

Young-Hernandez's attorney denies the allegations.
