SAN DIEGO — A 24-year-old San Diego man who coerced two teenage girls to engage in prostitution, making him hundreds of dollars in profits, was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in federal prison.
Lamar Moore, aka “Briv,” pleaded guilty last October to child sex trafficking.
In February 2014, members of the San Diego police Human Trafficking Team rescued a 17-year-old girl at a local motel and arrested the defendant.
In his plea agreement, Moore admitted that he coerced the 17-year-old girl and a 15-year-old victim to engage in sex for his financial benefit.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Moore was at the helm of a criminal enterprise that included five others.
Since his arrest, one of those five — San Diego resident Darius Chambers — also pleaded guilty to child sex trafficking.
Another San Diego resident — Daijon Vailes — was arrested and charged with similar crimes.
Chambers will be sentenced on July 31.
