SUMMARY:

According to information presented at trial and in a Department of Justice press release, in late April 2006, Defendants Fields and Brooks met two minor females at a motel in Arizona. The victims had previously run away from a juvenile rehabilitation center. Defendants bought bus tickets for the victims to travel with them to San Diego. There, Defendant Fonteneaux set up Craigslist “dates” during which at least one of the victims engaged in commercial sex acts. The victims were then brought back to Phoenix for the purposes of engaging in prostitution. In Phoenix, one of the victims was arrested by a police officer on suspicion of prostitution; after determining that the victim was a minor, local law enforcement arrested defendants.  

Defendants Fields and Brooks were found guilty by a federal jury of child sex trafficking and interstate transportation of a minor for purposes of prostitution. They were sentenced to 198 months imprisonment. Defendant Fonteneaux, who testified at the trial of Fields and Brooks,   pleaded guilty to charges related to the trafficking scheme.
