Defendant pleaded guilty to commercial sex trafficking of children. He admitted to recruiting (at least) five underage girls to work for him as prostitutes. After luring the girls to a hotel room, he took nude photographs of them, and advertised their services on the internet. Defendant was arrested after a sting operation in which he was seen taking the girls to and from motels where they agreed to perform sexual acts for money. At least two of the girls were taken into protective custody.
