Suspect Charged With Trafficking Girl, 17

Recent news from Florida:

A man suspected of selling sex with an underage runaway was arrested on human trafficking charges after the girl’s rescue in May, authorities said Thursday.
State Attorney Aramis Ayala, joined by Ron Stucker, the director of the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation, announced the arrest of Timothy Bernard White, 22, on charges including human trafficking of a child under 18.
“In this case, we were able recover and rescue a 17-year-old juvenile who was being trafficked here in Orlando,” Stucker said,
Officials say White met the girl over social media while the child was living in a group home in Tampa. Authorities say she ran away and met White at a Central Florida motel.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office became aware of the girl’s location and told agents with the MBI, a multi-jurisdictional law-enforcement agency that often deals with vice and organized crime. Authorities rescued the girl at the Orlando Metropolitan Resort, just off International Drive on May 31.
Authorities say White posted the girl’s pictures on various websites advertising sex and took the proceeds. Officials were able to identify Christopher David Jackson, 34, and Steven Ramos, 40, as two men they say responded to the postings.
“Both of them … went to the hotel and each independently had sex with this minor,” Stucker said.
Stucker said both men claimed to not know the child was underage. Under state law, alleged perpetrators do not need to know the victim’s age to be charged with human trafficking of a child.
“If you engage in prostitution, you will be prosecuted,” Ayala said. “If you are engaging in prostitution of underage children, you will be tried as a human trafficker and hopefully sentenced to the rest of your life in prison.”
Human trafficking continues to plague Central Florida. Orlando ranks third in the nation for reports of human trafficking, a positition that can be attributed to its place as a tourism hot-spot. The MBI has received more than 100 tips concerning human trafficking this year, Stucker said.
White faces charges including human trafficking, transporting for the purpose of prostitution and deriving support from the proceeds of prostitution. Jackson and Ramos face charges of human trafficking and unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

Feminists have ignored this story, for some reason.
