A routine traffic stop turned into a sex trafficking arrest when a police officer noticed a young looking Jane Doe in the back seat of a car occupied by co-defendants Cierra Mellissa Robinson and Chuncey Tarae Garcia. The Garden Grove Police Officer took 14 year old Jane Doe into custody and arrested Garcia and Robinson under suspicion of sex trafficking.
14 year old Jane Doe was identified as a missing person at the time of the arrest.
Robinson and Garcia are accused of befriending the girl with the intent of recruiting her into sex trafficking when she ran away from home in another state.
This is the first Orange County case of human trafficking of a minor under Proposition 35. Under the law, human trafficking is “depriving or violating the personal liberty of another person with the intent to effect a violation of pimping or pandering.” A commercial sex act is “sexual conduct on account of which anything of value is given or received by any person.”
Garcia are accused of collecting all the money Jane Doe received from adult male sex purchasers whom she was forced to have sex. Garcia is accused of setting a daily quota for Jane Doe, and of posting sexually explicit ads on prostitution websites in order to sell Jane Doe to potential purchasers.
