RENO, Nev. (AP) -
A federal grand jury has indicted a Reno man accused of being pimp and bringing a 15-year-old girl from California to work as a prostitute in Nevada.
The indictment handed up Wednesday on a sex trafficking charge says 20-year-old Vernon McCullum III transported the teen from Bakersfield to Reno earlier this month
Bakersfield police began to investigate when the girl was reported missing on Jan. 10. Investigators traced an advertisement on a Web site offering sex for money to a telephone number of the missing girl.
The indictment said McCullum posted nude photos of the girl on the website, directed her to have sex with customers and then collected the proceeds.
If convicted, he faces a minimum of 10 years to life in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.
