SUMMARY:Roy Lee Starks persuaded a thirteen-year-old female, "J.S.", to accompany him from her hometown of Mesa, Arizona, to Hollywood, California, to engage in prostitution. He agreed to provide her with food and shelter if she would work as his prostitute. The day they reached Hollywood, J.S. engaged two customers and turned over the money she earned to Starks. That same day, Starks was pulled over by the police, and J.S. said she'd been kidnapped by him, but then recanted and said she'd gone with him willingly. At trial, Starks' girlfriend, A.W., an adult, testified that she had worked for Starks as a prostitute in various states, and had recruited another victim, S.F.M., to work for him.
