Child Sex Trafficker Gets Ten Years

 

SAN DIEGO – Lamar Moore, a.k.a. “El Brivv,” a.k.a. “Briv,” a twenty-four year-old resident of San Diego, was sentenced today to 120 months in prison for trafficking two minor girls for commercial sex.

In February 2014, Detectives Chris Haughey and Eric Drilling, members of the San Diego Police Human Trafficking Team, rescued a 17-year-old girl from Moore at a local motel. They then arrested Moore.

Moore pleaded guilty on October 9, 2014. In his plea agreement, he admitted that he coerced the rescued 17-year-old, and a second, 15-year-old victim, to engage in commercial sex for his financial benefit. He also provided hotel rooms, condoms, and internet advertisements for their sexual services. Moore received hundreds of dollars in proceeds from the victims’ acts of prostitution.

Moore’s crimes were part of a criminal enterprise which he led that involved two additional minor males, one additional adult male, and two additional adult females. Since his arrest, one of those males – a San Diego resident named Darius Chambers – has also pled guilty to child sex trafficking. Another – San Diegan named Daijon Vailes – has been arrested and charged with the same offense. Chambers will be sentenced on July 31, 2015 by U.S. District Judge Janis L. Sammartino. Vailes entered a plea of not guilty and awaits trial.

United States Attorney Laura Duffy said, “We take these crimes very seriously. If you traffic a child for commercial sex in the Southern District of California, you should expect to spend many, many years in federal prison.”
