    Illegal alien MS-13 member to face child sex traffic charges

    Illegal alien MS-13 member to face child sex traffic charges

    A MS-13 gang leader charged with running a teenage prostitution business after one of the girls made a daring escape is expected to plead guilty Monday.

    According to charging documents filed in federal court in Alexandria, Yimmy Anthony Pineda Penado was the leader of the Pinos Locos Salvatrucha clique who headed up a group of about 25 members of the El Salvadorian-based Mara Salvatrucha 13 gang.

    Pineda Penado, 22, of Montgomery County, is accused of providing young runaways -- some younger then 13 -- with alcohol and drugs to make them more receptive to have sex for money with older men, prosecutors said.

    "From the moment he laid eyes on the victim, [he] did not see a young 12-year-old runaway in need of help," said Neil H. MacBride, United States attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.

    Pineda Penado, also known as Spike, had a list of clients, including members of his gang, and booked multiple prostitution appointments per day for each girl, court documents said.

    Charging documents contain testimony evidence from a girl who described how she was forced to work for Pineda Penado when she was just 15.

    Three weeks after running away from home to live with her boyfriend, MS-13 members threatened to harm her boyfriend if she did not agree to prostitute for them.

    Pineda Penado and other members had sex with the girl to see how she performed, documents said.

    "We're your owners now," Pineda Penado told the girl, documents said.

    Pineda Penado plied the girl with "Blue Dream" marijuana, methamphetamine, Ecstasy, tequila and beer to keep the girl compliant, documents said.

    Pineda Penado instructed the girl to lie about her name and age and act like she was enjoying the sexual intercourse.

    After about a year, the girl planned her escape. She convinced Pineda Penado to take her to see a wealthy client in Northern Virginia.

    Pineda Penado finally agreed, but warned her, "If you [mess] with me, you know what's going to happen."

    When Pineda Penado stopped and went into a convenience store in Virginia, the girl snuck out of the vehicle and ran to a nearby car that had tinted windows where Pineda Penado could not see her.

    She turned herself into the Alexandria Juvenile Detention Center,

    Pineda Penado is an illegal alien with a previous felony conviction, according to court documents.

    MS-13 Leader Pleads Guilty in Juvenile Prostitution Case

    September 11, 2012 7:58 pmBy: Fairfax News



    A former clique leader of MS-13 in Maryland pled guilty yesterday for his role in a gang-run juvenile prostitution ring.

    Yimmy Anthony Pineda Penado, also known as “Critico” and “Spike,” 22, of Montgomery County, Maryland, pled guilty today to sex trafficking a juvenile. He faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison when he is sentenced on December 14, 2012.

    “This is the 11th gang member convicted with child sex trafficking since 2011,” said U.S. Attorney Neil H. MacBride. “Prostituting young girls is a growing threat in our area, and we encourage anyone with information of this activity to call law enforcement. That one call could save a girl from sexual slavery.”

    “Today’s plea is the direct result of the joint efforts of law enforcement to combat juvenile prostitution and human trafficking in Northern Virginia,” said James W. McJunkin, Assistant Director in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Washington Field Office. “Together with our partner agencies, we will continue to pursue anyone who attempts to exploit vulnerable young girls for sex and money.”

    According to a statement of facts filed in court, Pineda Penado is a former clique leader of the international street gang Mara Salvatrucha Thirteen, also known as MS-13. He admitted that in the fall of 2009 through the spring of 2010, he assisted his fellow gang members in prostituting at least one teenage girl in hotels, motels, and homes controlled by MS-13 in Northern Virginia and Maryland.
    Sex with 20 “clients”

    Over a two-week period, the teen girl was forced to have sex with more than 20 clients, and gang members provided the juvenile with alcohol and drugs in an effort to make her more compliant and receptive to being prostituted.

    The investigation was conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office and ICE HSI, with assistance from the Fairfax County Police Department and the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force. Assistant United States Attorneys Patricia T. Giles and Zachary Terwilliger are prosecuting the case on behalf of the United States.

    Founded in 2004, the Northern Virginia Human Trafficking Task Force is a collaboration of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies—along with nongovernmental organizations—dedicated to combating human trafficking and related crimes.
