Sacramento Man Sentenced to 14 Years in Prison for Sex Trafficking Investigated in part by California Department of Justice’s Special Operations Unit

SACRAMENTO- On September 8, 2020, Jaquorey Rashawn Carter, 24, of Sacramento, was sentenced to 14 years in prison for sex trafficking of a child.

According to evidence presented at a February 2020 jury trial, between 2013 and October 2018, Carter used a minor female and other adult women to work as prostitutes for him. As part of Carter’s pimping operation, he put the minor victim and other adult women in motel rooms and had them engage in prostitution on the street in order to make money from their prostitution activity. Carter ran his pimping operation in Sacramento, Stockton, Oakland, Sunnyvale, and Santa Ana.

In 2013, Carter began recruiting a then-14-year-old girl to work as a prostitute for him. In the years that followed, Carter took that minor victim to other cities where he would rent motel rooms in which the victim engaged in acts of prostitution. Carter continued to be involved in the use of this victim for acts of prostitution until 2018.

Evidence presented at the jury trial also showed that Carter had been arrested or contacted by law enforcement while he was transporting women to or from his illegal business opportunities. In September 2018, a federal judge authorized the wiretap of Carter’s cell phone. Sacramento-based task force agents then intercepted calls demonstrating that Carter was actively recruiting, harboring, transporting, and managing several women engaged in prostitution throughout California.

“Thank you to the agents and officers who investigated this individual and for seeing the case through prosecution and sentencing,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.  “The crime of sex trafficking can destroy victims’ lives and we must hold those who devalue and hurt human lives in this way, accountable.”

This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the California Department of Justice’s Special Operations Unit, and the Sacramento Police Department. The California Highway Patrol, Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, and the Sacramento District Attorney’s Office assisted in the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brian A. Fogerty and Jason Hitt prosecuted the case.
