A man accused of forcing a woman into prostitution has been convicted of human trafficking.
A Sacramento County jury on Friday found Chaderick Ingram, 35, guilty of human trafficking and pandering, according to a Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office news release.
The victim was staying in Sacramento temporarily with her boyfriend and met Ingram through mutual friends. On June 9, 2014, Ingram took her from the apartment where she was staying, beat her and stole her personal property, authorities said. He then created an advertisement on a prostitution escort website. He also forced the victim to walk the streets on two occasions, threatening her and her family if she did not comply.
The victim was with Ingram for approximately three days before she managed to escape and call 911.
Ingram is to be sentenced Aug. 7 by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Gerrit Wood.
