“The world of sexual slavery is vile and horrific – but very real in northern Virginia,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “Every instance of sex trafficking is sickening and this specific case is no different.  Here, the alleged victim was a young, pregnant girl in need of help – but instead of help, Ms. Guerrero Andrade is accused of sexually exploiting her for profit.  Our utmost priority is to protect our children, and we will continue to go after those who prey on them and lure them into the sexual trade.”

“HSI is committed to preventing MS-13 from luring vulnerable teenage victims into a life of prostitution for their own greed,” said Special Agent in Charge Torres. “We will continue to diligently work with our law enforcement partners to combat gang sex trafficking in our communities.”

Guerrero Andrade was charged by criminal complaint of child sex trafficking, which carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison, if convicted. She was arrested this morning in Hyattsville, Md., without incident and made her initial appearance before United States Magistrate Judge T. Rawles Jones Jr. this afternoon.
