Rykken was previously identified as a former staff sergeant with the U.S. Air Force and Karki was identified as a professor at Indiana University.

Goins was also identified as a major from the U.S. Air Force. He was not stationed at WPAFB, a spokesperson said.

Goins, Rykken, Karki and Wagle were all charged with engaging in prostitution and possessing criminal tools.

Hubbard was charged with sexual imposition, obstructing official business, and resisting arrest.

All were a part of the over 100 people arrested last month during a crackdown that sought to arrest those trying to buy sex and to identify survivors of human trafficking.

Michael Masterson, an administrator at the University of Dayton, was also arrested during the sting.

He has not been charged yet.
