Rancho Santa Margarita, CA -  Teresa Adame  who posted ads for two victims on the Internet was sentenced to two years in state prison yesterday on two felony counts of attempted pimping.

According to the Orange County District Attorney's (OCDA) office, on June 6, 2013, Adame posted a sexually suggestive ad on a website known for prostitution with the purpose of soliciting sex purchasers.  Huntington Beach Police Department (HBPD) officers discovered the ad and called Adame. The defendant arranged an appointment for the undercover officer to meet with the victim, 26-year-old Jane Doe #1.  The victim and the officer met and agreed on payment of $200.  Adame pre-arranged to collect a percentage of the money. The officer then terminated the meeting.

On June 11, 2013, undercover officers of the Anaheim Police Department (APD), working with HBPD, located another sexually suggestive ad on the same website. When contacted, Adame arranged a meeting  with the second victim, 22-year-old Jane Doe #2. Adame then drove the victim to a motel in Anaheim, which was the agreed upon meeting place. An undercover officer met the victim, paid her the agreed upon price, and then terminated the meeting.

Adame retrieved the victim from the motel and fled the scene. Shortly thereafter, Adame was arrested in a traffic stop.

This case was investigated by HBPD and APD. Deputy District Attorney Daniel Varon of the Human Exploitation And Trafficking (HEAT)  Unit prosecuted this case.

The Orange County District Attorney and the HEAT Unit targets perpetrators who sexually exploit and traffic women and underage girls for financial gain, including pimps, panderers, and human traffickers.
