Leroy Bragg Charged
Leroy Bragg Charged – Los Angeles authorities have recently come to the conclusion that the number of victims of an alleged pimp could be more than they originally thought. Leroy Bragg was arrested on September 28, and faces criminal charges of trafficking a minor, and solicitation, among other crimes dealing with his abduction of a 13-year-old girl. He is also suspected of kidnapping a 14-year-old girl.
The police captain of Los Angeles, Ann Young, said that they now believe that there could have been numerous interactions with Bragg by many of the young women in Los Angeles. She is urging anyone who was a victim to come forward.
So far Bragg has pleaded not guilty, and is still in jail, where he is being held on a $1.3 million bail. If he is convicted of these charges, he could be sentenced to life in prison under the three strikes law, due to previous burglary charges that he has accrued.
Police found the two latest girls in a hotel room, and they told police officers that they had been kidnapped. They had been locked in the room for multiple days and given drugs, as well as tattooed with Braggs alias in order to identify her as his property.
