A male employee of the King County metro in the state of Washington has been accused of grooming and pimping his babysitter for five years.
The 45-year-old employee was booked in jail on rape and trafficking charges.
The county sheriff's office reports that the crimes began in 2008 when the victim was just 16 and continued up to 2013.
During that time the suspect groomed the victim to become a prostitute for him. He worked as her pimp and offered the young girl's services through different online sites and portals.
Court documents state that the accused was a Major in the Civil Air Patrol when he met the alleged victim who was a CAP cadet at the time. She was hired by the defendant to babysit his two children and that was when the raping started. Soon after, she moved into his basement. The wife of the accused, the mother of his kids, discovered the crime and divorced him.
The documents also indicate that the perpetrator forced his alleged victim to perform in pornographic movies and forced her to marry his barber for a green card.
The Sheriff's Office received a court order that authorized a recording of conversations between the perpetrator and the alleged victim. Court documents show that during those conversations, the perpetrator admitted to pimping his alleged victim and apologized to her several times.
Under the terms of the perpetrator's release, he cannot contact the alleged victim, or have contact with minor children, including his two children.
