A Stockton, California man plead guilty in U.S. District Court in Sacramento yesterday to sex trafficking a child 

According to evidence introduced, Ricky Lee Richardson, Jr., 41, starting in November 2011, he recruited a minor victim to engage in prostitution. Between December 2011 and March 2012, Richardson caused the then 16-year-old victim to engage in prostitution in Stockton and throughout Northern California. 

Richardson arranged for nude photos to be taken of the victim that were posted as prostitution advertisements on the internet. The victim was driven by Richardson to motels and gave her false identification cards that she used to rent rooms for the prostitution activity and took the money that the victim obtained from that activity.

In custody since his arrest in April 2016, Richardson will be sentenced by Judge Troy L. Nunley on May 17, 2018. He faces a maximum statutory penalty of life in prison and a $250,000 fine.
