A Downey pimp arrested in 2013 for selling minor girls in a Disneyland-area prostitution ring won an incredibly lax punishment this week: six months of home detention.
According to an FBI report reviewed by OC Weekly, Rayshaad Dajreon Taite (a.k.a. "Long Beach Truth") participated in the transportation of minor girls from Las Vegas' Mandalay Bay Hotel and Circus Circus to Anaheim in an Internet-ad driven prostitution network operated with Curtis Maurice Canady.
In the pimping operation, Taite posted–cough, cough–Hemingway-like prose on the Internet, including: "Aye on God my Bitch grind come join the money team over 800 in 2 hours," "My Nigga cash ain't ready for the LV loafers them Bitches feel like walkin on water," and "I pimp so much every time I hear the words hoe-trap-hooker-blade-Vegas-Break-Daddy-Turn Out-Choose Up-My dick get hard."
New York publishing houses: Are you paying attention to this dude's literary gifts?
Judge James V. Selna, Carter's colleague inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse, sealed relevant documents so the public will never know why Taite, who was born in 1990, won leniency.
In the last year, several defendants claimed they didn't know it's illegal to participate in the human trafficking of underage girls for prostitution.
R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
