Atlanta drag personality Pasha Nicole to make plea in sex trafficking case

Christopher Lynch, also known as Pasha Nicole, indicted on human trafficking charges

Atlanta drag personality Pasha Nicole, whose legal name is Christopher Lynch, will appear before a Douglas County Superior Court judge on Wednesday to face charges of human trafficking,

Lynch was arrested one year ago — March 4, 2011 — and charged with trafficking minors for sex.

Also arrested was gay bar BJ Roosters' former go-go dancer Stephen Lemery. Lemery remains in the Douglas County Sheriff's jail and his case is in a "holding pattern" right now, said assistant DA Rachel Ackley today. Lynch also remains in jail; both were denied bond.

Ackley said today she expects Lynch to plead guilty, but is still in negotiation to what exact charges.
