Federal Grand Jury Indicts Two Men For Using Child As Prostitute And Porn Star

A Southern California grand jury has indicted two men on charges involving the sex trafficking of a child and child pornography.

Antonio Dickerson (a.k.a. "Girbaud") and D'Antoine Thomas (a.k.a. "J.O.") are named in the two-count indictment revealed this week inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse.

The case stems from an April 2011, event where Dickerson and Thomas allegedly recruited and transported a minor under the age of 18 to work as a prostitute, according to the indictment that does not give the victim's age, sex or state of residence.

The grand jury also claims the defendants coerced the minor "to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct" and plotted to make the images available through interstate and foreign commerce.

Upcoming Events

Whether the defendants have been arrested and are in custody isn't known.

A communication to the assistant United States attorney handling the case has not yet won a reply.

No hearing dates have been scheduled and the matter awaits the assignment of a presiding federal judge.
