David Williams physically abused the teen and “deprived her of her liberty for the purpose of pimping and pandering,” the DA’s office said in a news release citing police findings. He pleaded guilty to three felony counts— human trafficking, pimping and pandering — on May 24.

The victim was found by authorities through an escort advertisement they initially believed was showing a minor. After contacting the listing, they learned she was an adult.

The San Bernardino County Human Trafficking Task Force spearheaded the investigation. No further information has been released by authorities.
