SUMMARY:

According to information provided in the appellate record, Defendant Wild transported three minor females from Oklahoma to Texas for the purposes of prostituting the victims. Once the girls were in Texas, Wild told the victims that they would have to earn money from prostitution if they wanted to return to Oklahoma. Wild threatened to kill one of the victims if she revealed to anyone that Wild had prostituted her. One victim testified that she had as many as 10 “dates” in a day; some of the johns were recruited by Wild in local bars. During the period when they were exploited from April 2003 to July 2003, the victims turned over all of the money they earned to Wild. Wild was arrested after one of the victims was able to contact her mother by telephone, who then contacted law enforcement officials.

A federal jury found Defendant Wild guilty of sex trafficking and transporting a minor across state lines with the intent that the minor engage in prostitution. She was sentenced to 121 months imprisonment.

After two years on the run following his indictment, Defendant Gutierrez pleaded guilty to charges relating to the trafficking scheme. According to media reports, Wild shared with Gutierrez profits from the victims’ commercial sex acts.  He was sentenced to 121 months imprisonment.
