Federal prosecutors in Virginia continue to target the violent street gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, the latest focus of a gang task force being a 21-year-old Maryland man who pleaded guilty Friday to sex-trafficking charges.
A 21-year-old Maryland man has pleaded guilty to sex trafficking a juvenile female as part of a prostitution enterprise operated by the violent street gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13.
He admitted in court to transporting a teenage girl within Virginia and Maryland to engage in sex with clients.
"His conviction is yet another example of our zero-tolerance policy against anyone participating in this unconscionable crime," he said.
