A Greenville man has been accused of facilitating prostitution activity in locations throughout the East Coast.

38-year Cornelius Shontea Lyles (a.k.a Premo Finesse) is facing many charges including human trafficking by force, fraud and coercion, and various interstate prostitution charges.

The criminal complaint says Lyles communicated with a person he believed to be an out of state female and purchased a plane ticket to fly her to Orlando where she would engage in prostitution and send the proceeds back to Lyles. A witness for the prosecution alleges Lyles facilitated and directed prostitution activity in various locations throughout the east coast of the United States.

If convicted, Lyles faces life in prison.
