A 24-year-old man pleaded not guilty Monday to attempting to pimp two underage girls in an undercover sting operation in Orange County.
Terry Hammond Williams was charged Monday with two counts of human trafficking of an underage victim, two counts of pandering a 16-year-old and two counts of attempting to pimp a minor older than 16, all felonies, according to court records.
Williams is accused of contacting an Orange County sheriff’s investigator about 9:30 p.m., Oct. 19, posing as a 16-year-old prostitute on Facebook, according to an affidavit filed to boost Williams’ bail.
Williams said he wanted to take the fictitious teen girl to Northern California to have her work for him as a prostitute, according to investigators.
The undercover agent said she had a friend who was 15 years old who was working with her as a prostitute.
Williams allegedly said he wished to also pimp the 15-year-old, adding, “he didn’t care what age she was,” according to investigators.
The agent sent $132 to Williams through a WalMart electronic money transfer as he requested, investigators said.
When Williams went to meet with the fictitious teen in Buena Park he was arrested, investigators said.
Williams was ordered to return to court Nov. 6 for a pretrial hearing.
