Galt, Sacramento suspects arrested by Feds on child sex trafficking charges

Two suspects fom the Sacramento region were recently taken into custody after a federal grand jury issued incictments at the U.S. District Court in Sacramento.

Eva Symone Christian, 22, of Sacramento, was arrested on June 14, and Robert Pierre Duncan, 24, of Galt, was arrested by FBI agents on May 31. Duncan and Christian are charged in a two-count indictment, unsealed on June 14 that was returned by a federal grand jury in Sacramento on May 30, charging them with conspiring to engage in sex trafficking, and sex trafficking of a child.
