Earlier this year, elite Anaheim Police Department vice squad officers arrested Los Angeles resident and wanna be, tough talking, rapper Curtis Canady (a.k.a. "Cash") for pimping underage girls near Disneyland and, after I broke the news, his proud momma repeatedly wrote me angry messages declaring her son's innocence and my stupidity.
Gina Vazquez--the once feisty, foul-mouthed woman who claims she is Canady's mother--even laughably tried to allege that her son was a post-George Zimmerman victim of racist Orange County.
Alas, while I am most certainly stupid, Vazquez is silent today after her son pleaded guilty to federal pimping charges tied to the disgraceful, sexual sale of minors, including a 15-year-old girl.
Prior to her son's admission, an aggressive Vazquez decided to join my personal Twitter account and repeatedly relayed hostile, ignorant messages attacking my news reporting of court actions.
Sorry, Vazquez, I'm fairly certain only a scumbag would grow up in an environment where the selling of a high school freshman for sex is even remotely acceptable.
This month, U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter accepted Canady's guilty plea.
The prosecutor in the case, Orange County-based Assistant United States Attorney Anthony Brown, will advocate a punishment that could be a 10-year minimum prison sentence, unless federal sentencing guidelines allow for an exception.
A sentencing date is scheduled for February 10.
There's been a rash of pimps selling underage African American girls in overwhelmingly white Orange County in recent years, especially around Disneyland and Newport Beach.

Federal law allows for heightened punishment for the transportation and selling of underage prostitutes.
Canady remains in the custody of U.S. marshals.
