The FBI says an Oregon woman accused of sex trafficking a minor has been arrested a month after she removed an ankle monitoring device and failed to show for a court hearing.

Agency spokeswoman Beth Anne Steele says San Francisco police arrested 19-year-old Julia Lynn Haner on Monday. She's charged in California with sex trafficking and possession of a concealed weapon.

In Oregon, the former competitive cheerleader was indicted in April on accusations that she recruited for prostitution a 17-year-old girl with whom she used to ride the school bus to Lake Oswego High School.

Haner pleaded not guilty and was allowed to live at home while wearing the monitoring device as the legal proceedings continued.

The FBI did not release details about her arrest in San Francisco.
