SUMMARY:Defendants Patrick Jones, Shawndrea Dorrough, Dominique Willis, and Dwayne Tousant recruited a 14-year-old female to engage in commercial sex acts by picking her up from a restaurant in San Diego. Defendants transported her to a motel where they forced her to pose for sexually explicit photographs. Defendants planned to use these photographs to solicit johns for the victim on the internet. The victim managed to escape the motel room and called the police. All four defendants were convicted of sex trafficking and sentenced to various prison sentences from 92 months to 180 months.
