June 22, 2017 |  

The Sacramento FBI field office announced an Elk Grove man was arrested on Wednesday, June 21 on suspicion of child trafficking.

The suspect, Abdul Basier Hashimi (pictured above), 25, is charged with one count of sex trafficking of a child.  Hasimi was taken into custody yesterday by Elk Grove Police and is being without eligibility for bail at the Sacramento County Jail.

On June 8, a federal grand jury in Sacramento returned a sealed indictment against the suspect charging him with one count of sex trafficking of children. The indictment was unsealed today following Hashimi’s arrest.
According to court documents, between August 2014 and November 2014, Hashimi recruited, harbored, transported, and advertised a minor victim, knowing that the minor would be caused to engage in prostitution.
This case is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sacramento Police Department. Hashimi faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison, and up to a $250,000 fine if he is convicted
No future court dates are currently scheduled.  
Last April Hashimi was arrested by Elk Grove Police on domestic violence, assault, probation violation, and resisting arrests charges.
