SUMMARY:Ramon Fuertes was found guilty on both counts, after a jury trial. He encouraged the victim to prostitute herself for a period of 11 days, although for 2 days the victim was her parents house. The victim saw 4 to 5 customers a day. The victim gave all the money she earned to Fuertes who arranged for a motel room, food and drugs. Evidence of an internet ad on backpage.com that advertised the victim's services, and the google email address that was used to post the ad were introduced into evidence. Both pieces of evidence were authenticated through employees of backpage.com and google respectively. The advert was posted by an email address owned by Fuertes. Fuertes was found guilty on both counts.
