A federal grand jury has indicted three Sacramento residents for sex trafficking of a minor and related charges.

A four-count indictment returned Sept. 30 charges Jamal Kareem Warren, 24, with sex trafficking of a minor, producing images depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor, distributing images depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor and possessing images depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor. Warren made his initial appearance in court Monday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Edmund F. Brennan, according to a U.S. Department of Justice news release.

The indictment alleges that between November 2009 and Dec. 15, 2009, Warren, along with Mario Londell Boyd, 42, and Ashley Nicole Evon, 23, knowingly recruited, enticed, harbored, transported and maintained a 16-year-old girl for the purpose of having her engage in a commercial sex act. The indictment also charges Warren with producing, distributing and possessing images depicting the sexual exploitation of a minor and seeks criminal forfeiture of several items used to facilitate the crime.

Evon is scheduled to make her initial appearance in court Tuesday. Boyd has not been apprehended.

The case resulted from a joint investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sacramento Police Department.
