SACRAMENTO – On February 1, 2018, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra today announced that California Department of Justice (DOJ) special agents arrested a Sacramento woman for her alleged involvement in an international sex trafficking ring. Yun Escamilla, 58, also known as “Angela,” was booked into the Sacramento County Jail on five counts of felony pandering.
“At the California Department of Justice, our special agents and prosecutors are prepared to use every tool at our disposal to combat sex trafficking,” said Attorney General Becerra. “In California, this type of criminal conduct will not go unnoticed.”
According to the complaint, the defendant is accused of trafficking five young Asian females, including one from Hong Kong, at three locations in Sacramento in 2015 and 2017.
“It is despicable that an individual would profit from sex trafficking another human being,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona. “California DOJ special agents are committed to investigating and arresting those involved in sex trafficking and assisting in the prosecution.”
