SUMMARY:Defendant Love, Jr. (a.k.a. "Ace Love"), who advertised his "Love Zone" escort service online, was a long-time pimp. When he was arrested in September, 2002, the FBI found 6 women and girls being held in his apartment.  He had transported the women between Washington, DC, Las Vegas, NV and Los Angeles, CA.  In this case against him, he specifically admitted to the sex trafficking of a 13 year old girl whom he met on a telephone dating line. When he met her in person he recruited her to work as a prostitute for him, provided her with a fake adult ID, and sent her on the streets to prostitute herself.
