Two men have been sentenced in Napa County Superior Court in connection with pimping a teenager earlier this year in Napa and Vallejo, according to court records.

The allegations came to light in April when the mother of the 18-year-old teenager told Napa police her daughter was involved in prostitution, according to court records.

The men were prosecuted for alleged sexual incidents that occurred between February and March 2012, according to court records.

The mother told police her daughter suffers from bipolar disorder, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, and “does not have the mindset of an 18-year-old,” court records show.

Luis Angel Campos, 26, a documented gang member in Napa County, was sentenced on Nov. 15 to four years in state prison after pleading no contest to pimping and being a member of a street gang with a special allegation, according to court records. Pleading no contest has the effect of a guilty plea at sentencing.

Campos, a former American Canyon resident with no fixed address, told officers he agreed to “bring people to (Jane Doe) and hooked her up,” according to the probation report. Incidents mentioned in the probation report took place in motel rooms in Vallejo that were registered under Jane Doe’s name, according to the court filing.

“Luis agreed that sometimes the people would pay Jane Doe and she gives the money to him and he gives her back money to pay for the hotel. He also said it was up to her if she wanted to charge the ‘homeys,’” referring to gang members.

Campos told police the clients were from Napa, according to court filings. He would send them pictures of Jane Doe and tell them to go to Vallejo to meet with her, according to the probation report. People would pay $50 to $60 for sex and would get discounts if they brought a friend, the report stated.

 “(Campos) said the people who he was getting for her were from Napa and he would communicate with them by texting or calling,” according to the probation report.

According to the report, Campos said he never forced Jane Doe to “do anything and she told him she was okay with all of this.”

On Friday, Oscar Barbosa, 27, of Napa, who allegedly drove Jane Doe to meet men, was sentenced to a month in jail under a plea agreement with prosecutors, court records show.

Barbosa pleaded no contest in October to conspiracy to commit a crime in exchange for having the other charges dismissed. He is scheduled to report to the Napa County jail on Jan. 9.

A third suspect, Jorge Alejandre Perez, 43, of Napa, was originally charged with pimping. In August, he was sentenced to a year’s probation after pleading no contest to disorderly conduct, court records show.

    Vallejo in recent years has had alot of problems with sex traffic prostitution and up until recently Craig List and still to this day RED Book was an easy way to find this crimnal act still in its use this is not a victimless crime. Extortion also called blackmail shakedown outwresting and exaction is a criminal offence of unlawfully obtaining money property or services from a person become second nature in these crimnal acts.
