SUMMARY:

In January 2003, Defendant Kelvin Scott prostituted a 13 year-old female runaway, “S.H.”, in Amarillo, Texas, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Scott and an adult female prostitute lured the victim from an Oklahoma City bus stop by inviting S.H. to a party and by offering her drugs and alcohol.

The F.B.I. identified S.H. as a juvenile during an investigation of prostitution in Oklahoma City. During an interview with the F.B.I., S.H. implicated Scott as her former pimp. It was further revealed that Scott had previously employed five individuals, including another minor, as prostitutes.

In August 2003, Scott pleaded guilty transporting a minor across state lines for purposes of prostitution. He was sentenced to 120 months imprisonment. On appeal, Scott challenged his sentence; it was remanded, but then reinstated on remand.
