Guilty Pleas In Teen Prostitution
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two California men have pleaded guilty in federal court in Nevada to transporting two girls, ages 12 and 16, from Oakland, Calif., to Las Vegas to work as prostitutes.
U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said 19-year-old Ray Darnell Webb and 21-year-old Seagram Joshua Miller could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine at sentencing April 29.
The two men pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas to one count of coercion and enticement.
They’ll also have to register as sex offenders.
Webb and Miller are from Hayward, Calif.
Their plea agreements say they used MyRedbook.com to schedule prostitution business for the girls in Las Vegas last April and May.
Prostitution is legal in rural Nevada counties in but illegal in Las Vegas and Reno.
