Accused Sex Trafficker of Minor Girls Near Disneyland Wants His Mommy

Canady: Oh, mommy! Where art thou?
If an FBI agent's affidavit is right, Curtis Maurice Canady Jr. possessed enough cockiness to use the Internet to sell minor girls, ages 15 and 16, for sex this year with anonymous men in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Anaheim near Disneyland.

Thanks to the excellent work of the Orange County Child Exploitation Task Force and especially its Anaheim Police Department as well as FBI members, Canady is in federal custody today and blocked from bail.

But Canady, 19, isn't happy with living in the custody of U.S. marshals and he wants to go home to his mommy in Los Angeles.

This week, a taxpayer-supplied defense lawyer asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Nakazato to reconsider his Aug. 7 decision to grant federal prosecutor Michael Anthony Brown's request to deny bail because the defendant is allegedly dangerous and a flight risk, according to court documents.

In hoping to entice Nakazato to change his mind, Canady has promised that his mother and his girlfriend will post bail, and he will agree to home detention at his momma's residence until the case is resolved.

He also volunteered to wear an electronic monitoring device.

It's doubtful Department of Justice officials will agree with the plan, but so far there's no indication on the record what, if any, action Nakazato will take on the request inside Orange County's Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse.

According to the FBI affidavit, Canady used Internet photographic "escort" ads to sell the underage girls. One ad in California read, "I'm a sexy mixed hottie with magic touch looking to please. I'm 5'5 with hazel eyes [and] have sexy curves in all the right places. So, if you want some promising fun, I'm the one! Week 60 specials, come play. I'm waiting for you. Call me . . ."

Both minors gave statements about their prostitution activities to law enforcement officers, according to court records.

The defendant, who was arrested July 25 in "Operation Cross Country," could face a decade in prison if he's eventually convicted of the human sex trafficking charges.

Canady is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 21 for a preliminary hearing.

Eric Lamar Wells
In June, I reported on another brazen pimp--Eric Lamar Wells, who also trafficked two minor girls (ages 13 and 17) between Nevada, Arizona and Anaheim--and his 120-month federal prison sentence.

In July, Tonisha Alicia Moore, Wells' co-pimp and a prostitute herself, received a highly-discounted punishment of 70-months in prison because the judge believed she'd grown up in horrible conditions and Wells used violence to pressure her into helping to sell the minors.

I hope that the judges do what's right and keep this guy in jail.  From the comments below, I don't think he'll be released to a responsible adult.  Name calling doesn't help his case ladies.  Only facts will.  You know, like cell phone records and such. if he didn't do it, the proof will be there.  If he did, he gets what he deserves.  Karma man.  Karma.

The face tattoos scream "I am responsible" and "I make great decisions!"

You bitches on here talking shit don't know a damn thing about Curtis. You stupid cunts don't know what was going on with Curtis and these girls. These girls stated that Curtis didn't do any posting of any kind that they did, and he did not make them do these sexual acts, he may have been the person protecting these girls. Half these girls in the hood don't have parents that give a damn and have to fend for themselves. I know Curtis and he is a damn good kid and I can bet smarter than you tramps, maybe you bitches mad because you didn't ask him to help protect you while you were sucking your daddy's dick

Folks, guys like those in this article who traffic in human beings should not be breathing the same air as the rest of us.  Cases like this should be assigned to the "Star Chamber" for resolvment?   Trials and jail are too good for these scumbags.

I will not sit here and argue with you ppl for defaming my child but I will pursue a defamation of character case against u all when he is presumed innocent.

I wonder what his "ad" will be in the pokey?  

I'm a scared mama's boy with magic touch looking to please. I'm new to this so get it while it's still good! So, if you want some promising fun, I'm the one! 10 years of specials, come play. I'm waiting for you. Stop by my cell with a bag of chips . . ."

I have no sympathy for assholes who do this to children.  10 years is bullshit for this kind of offense.  This jerk and every other person who does this should go away for life! He's ruining lives!!! Why don't they see that!!!

Typical...wants his mama to come get him. He wasn't afraid of jail and consequences when he was pimping and trafficking kids. Enjoy those bologna sammiches and tap water meals, loser.

@ladybug_1977 I don't care if he is guilty or not. I just want him to burn in hell because he knows you. It would only be better if you burned in hell, too.

@ladybug_1977  Your foul mouth version of events is contrary to the story veteran law enforcement officers are telling. An FBI agent declared under oath that Curtis participated in the transporting, selling and revenue sharing of underage prostitutes. That's a pretty disgusting crime. If you are right that he's innocent and he's "a damn good kid," then the government's case will collapse. If not, then what does that say about him, you and his equally foul mouthed mother?

@pretty_bunny_68 The court of public opinion does not have to presume anyone innocent, moron. And I will expect you to lick all our asses when he is found guilty. I think he's guilty just because he knows you and ladybug. I have a feeling you probably molested these kids before he did and thats why you are so angry. Good luck with your defamation suits you imbecile.

@pretty_bunny_68 Wrong. I think he murdered that kid.  I also think your son is going to be in the pokey for a long time. 

Mind Blown.

@whateveryousay you are just mad because you don't have a mama like his who has his back. As far as being messed with that will never happen because he is far from a punk stupid

@Tunaay04 Agreed. He wrote those ads up, this wasn't a little oopsy mistake a teenager makes, like stealing a candy bar from a store. This was premeditated abuse, sex trafficking, and preying on young girls. I have no idea what compelled him to do what he did--but these girls didn't deserve this.

And volunteered to wear an electronic monitoring device? That's nice and all, but he should get harsher punishments. These girls aren't "prositutes", they are victims of sexual abuse. Punishment needs to be harsher on predators like this.

@SickSnail @pretty_bunny_68 You are really stupid. Don't assume that whatever happens in your household is whats happening in this household Moron. Like I said before don't be mad because your punk ass mama didn't have your back, oh that's right she couldn't  she was to busy probably molesting you.

@ladybug_1977 @whateveryousay Sure he is a punk. At the very minimum you would have to be a punk to get caught up in this, even if it's not true. And good thing regular folks like us don't need our mommies to get our backs for being accused of pimping young girls. And when the perv is found guilty, his momma won't be the only one to "have his back". Pretty sure there is a guy named Bubba that is going to love his back.

@rscottmoxley @toturntandburnt  You are stupid lady, cops lie all the time this isn't something new, where the fuck have you been. Unless these motherfuckers were with Curtis they don't know what really went down That's whats wrong with you people, you are so quick to judge a person even when the supposed victim is saying that he was not responsible. Drama. And as far as my little sister is concerned any parent who does not defend their child while dumb asses like you and any other bitch on this page is bashing him something is wrong. And as for myself I will take up for my sister and nephew any day against people like yourself. Like I said we know Curtis, you do not.

@toturntandburnt What are you saying? The FBI agents and Anaheim vice squad cops fabricated his involvement in this crime? If so, I await your details and will gladly report to the public any reasonable case of his innocence.

@pretty_bunny_68 @whateveryousay Curtis is certainly presumed innocent at this point. But he's been charged with very serious crimes, hence the media coverage of his arrest. A veteran FBI agent stated under oath that this defendant knowingly drove two minor girls to the Disneyland area to prostitute in his old, green Mitsubishi, his cell phone was used to place sex ads and he took a large percentage of the illicit earnings for himself. If those three law enforcement assertions prove true, Curtis likely won't be coming home to mommy for several years.
