Stockton man gets 11 year prison term for child sex trafficking conviction

September 12, 2018 |  

A Stockton, California man was sentenced on Wednesday, September 5 in U.S. District Court in Sacramento following his conviction for sex trafficking a child. In a decision handed down by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley, Ricky Lee Henderson Jr. will serve 11 years and three months in prison.

Evidence produced in his trial showed that in November 2011 recruited his minor victim to engage in prostitution. Between December 2011 and March 2012, Richardson caused the then 16-year-old victim to engage in commercial sex acts in Stockton and elsewhere in Northern California.

Richardson arranged for photos to be taken of the victim and he posted the prostitution advertisements on the internet that contained nude photos of the victim. Richardson drove the victim to motels, gave her fake identification cards that she used to rent rooms for the prostitution activity and collected the money that the victim obtained from Johns.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation with assistance from the Stockton Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian A. Fogerty prosecuted the case.
