BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The cases of two Bismarck men accused of attempting to solicit teens for sex earlier this year have been moved to federal court.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that 28-year-old Aaron Masser and 44-year-old Daniel Lawrence were charged in August in district court with luring minors by computer. Both cases were dismissed earlier this month, and the two men were indicted in federal court on Nov. 7 for attempted coercion or enticement of a minor. Magistrate Judge Charles Miller ordered both of them held in jail pending trial.

Masser's trial is scheduled for Jan. 15, and Lawrence's is scheduled for Jan. 22.
