LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A jury has found two Long Beach men guilty of human trafficking and pimping two women and a teenager over several months.
The Long Beach Press-Telegram reported Monday that 23-year-old Stacey Winn was convicted of several counts including pimping, human trafficking, sodomy by use of force, rape and kidnapping.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office says Winn's co-defendant, Eric James Avery, was convicted of two felony counts: pimping a minor 16 years of age or older and human trafficking of a minor for a sex act.
Jurors also found true allegations that the 25-year-old Avery was a member of the Long Beach Baby Insane Crip gang.
One of the victims was a 16-year-old girl who said she had been working as a prostitute for Avery.
Each man faces more than 30 years in prison.
