Long Beach Man Charged with Sex Trafficking of Teenage Girl

In Child Sex Trafficking, Forced Prostitution, Human Trafficking, Sex Trafficking on July 9, 2013 at 11:04 am

According to the affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, the teenage victim told investigators that she met Jackson in March and, following a series of phone calls and text messages, met him for dinner earlier this month. The girl told Jackson that she was 17, which allegedly prompted Jackson to tell her this would be their “secret.”

The victim told investigators that Jackson subsequently forced her into prostitution, arranging for her to have sex with dozens of male clients and warning her that she would be beaten if she resisted. The affidavit states the victim was required to work the streets approximately 12 hours a day and was allowed only one daily meal.

“The actions of those who prey on the vulnerability of young women in our community and exploit them through threats and intimidation will not be tolerated,” said Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell. “We will continue to join forces with our federal partners to ensure these individuals are being prosecuted to the fullest extent possible.”
