Feds: San Diego prostitution ring broken up

SAN DIEGO — A motel owner is among 38 people charged with helping to run a child and adult prostitution ring for a gang based in suburban San Diego, authorities said Monday.

A federal grand jury indictment alleges that the Oceanside Crips had girls and women prostitute themselves at low-cost motels in north San Diego County.

About 30 girls were rescued “from this nightmare that they’ve been living,” said Michael Carney, acting special agent in charge of investigations for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego.

The prostitutes ranged in age from 13 years old to young adults, said ICE spokeswoman Lauren Mack.

If convicted of racketeering conspiracy, each defendant faces up to 20 years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy said gang members solicited prostitutes on the Internet in “a form of modern-day slavery.”
