Child Prostitution in San Bernardino

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Jan 20, 2009 | 0 Comments

Child prostitution is a terrible crime, something that causes children to suffer throughout the world. Most people seem to think that child prostitution is something that doesn't happen in America today, but those people would be terribly wrong. Ontario and west San Bernardino county are being investigated for multiple cases of child prostitution. One is of a 45-year-old man arrested by Montclair police and accused of pimping a 13-year-old runaway and having sex regularly with her, all while wearing a GPS ankle bracelet that kept track of his whereabouts for authorities. According to court documents, the man accused of pimping the 13-year-old girl is Reginald Edward Christopher of Riverside. The girl, who called herself Baby Face 13 on the screen saver of her phone, said she was sleeping behind a Dumpster in an apartment complex in Ontario when Christopher picked her up and allegedly turned her to prostitution. The parolee was wearing a GPS ankle bracelet. Authorities said he lived in his 2005 black Cadillac and was required by the terms of his parole to be in a Riverside Park & Ride every night by 10 p.m. and to remain there until 6 a.m. Investigators said in court documents that it didn't prevent Christopher from having sex every night with the girl. He just took her along with him. The second case involves a 26-year-old woman arrested by Ontario police and accused of pandering by procuring a minor under the age of 16 for prostitution. Investigators say she met the 14-year-old San Diego girl in a shopping mall and won her friendship with gifts and guile. The story of the young victim was reported in earlier stories as the one put into prostitution on weekends, so that she could go to school and her parents wouldn't find out. According to the United States Department of Justice, it is estimated that about 293,000 American youth are currently at risk of becoming victims of commercial sexual exploitation.
