A 24-year-old Sacramento man who acted as a pimp for a 16-year-old runaway girl is headed to prison.

U.S. District Judge John A. Mendez today sentenced Justin Isaac Jackson to 11 years and four months in prison for sex trafficking, according to a federal Department of Justice news release.

From January to April 2009, Jackson acted as a pimp for the the runaway girl in Sacramento and Santa Cruz, according to court documents. Although he was aware of the girl’s age, Jackson purchased motel rooms for her use, drove her to meetings with customers and provided her with a phone to use to coordinate her prostitution activities. In exchange, he received some of the money she earned, authorities said.

Jackson was arrested April 26, 2009, after police stopped him while he was driving a car with the girl and an adult prostitute inside.

The case resulted from an investigation by the FBI’s Innocence Lost Task Force, composed of the FBI, the Sacramento Police Department and Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
