Orange County Pimp Sold Texas Minor Girls In Prostitution Ring

Santa Ana's Samuel Martinez Gonzalez was born in Mexico, came to the United States at the age of 16 with dreams of leading a prosperous life and, though he gained permanent resident status, now is scheduled to be deported as a despicable felon.

In 2011, Dallas-based Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agents assigned to human trafficking and working with Orange County Sheriff's Department deputies arrested Gonzalez, who transported three minor girls--one 15 years old and two 16-year-olds--from Texas for a prostitution ring based out of motels in Garden Grove and Orange.

According to a DHS report, Gonzalez--who lived entirely off the prostitution earnings of the minors plus one adult hooker--offered the girls a trip to California "to kick it."

Some of the minors' family members in Texas contacted police and a nationwide missing children report got issued.

After on-the-ball officers located the girls walking on Fourth Street in Santa Ana, the minors were initially uncooperative, but later reported they had been anxious to visit Southern California to see the Pacific Ocean.

Gonzalez bought his employees a large box of condoms, revealing clothes, placed Internet sex ads that failed to disclose their ages and waited for the phone to ring.

During the adventure, an Orange County John tied up and brutally assaulted one of the minors.

This week U.S. District Court Judge Andrew J. Guilford decided that the appropriate punishment for Gonzalez is 63 months in prison.

When the 26-year-old pimp--who isn't married but has an 11-year-old daughter living with her mother in Texas--emerges from custody he'll be banned from coming within 100 feet of schools, playgrounds, youth centers or any place children gather.

That condition probably is meaningless given that Gonzalez will be deported from the U.S. after he serves his prison sentence.

He hopes to be housed in a federal prison in Texas so that his mother can easily visit him.

"He hopes to be housed in a federal prison in Texas so that his mother can easily visit him." Ironic.... One can only hope this piece of garbage gets stabbed in the throat a day before his release.

Real Men Don't Buy Girls.....Real Men Lease Girls.  Why buy, when you can rent?  Why buy the moo cow when we get the milk for free.  All guys  shop like we are at the supermarket.  We want to make sure the melons are ripe and put them back on the rack.  What is wrong here?

It's an unfortunate cropping mishap. She's holding a sign that says "real men don't buy girls".

Oh please, young girls (and boys) are bought and sold all over the world. Sorry, you can't blame child prostitution on Mexico. :-P

@FishWithoutBicycle @Mitchell_Young  No, but we can blame this case on this jackass.  He should be fed to the sharks.  Just drive him up to the Long Beach Aquarium and drop him in and wait for the inevitable.

@FishWithoutBicycle @Mitchell_Young  The main point though is that if pro-open borders types get to use the ‘illegal alien valeditorian’ anecdote, those of us who want less immigration (legal and illegal) get to use the immigrant criminal anecdote. I guarantee there are more of the latter than the former.

@FishWithoutBicycle @Mitchell_Young  In some Mexican states the age of consent is as low as 12 years. And don’t you remember the case of a few years ago where a Mexican (from an indigenous community in that dear country) tried selling his daughter for meat and beer?


"A California [sic] man has been arrested for arranging for his 14-year-old daughter to marry a neighbor in exchange for $16,000, 100 cases of beer and several cases of meat, police said.

Authorities in Greenfield, a farming community on California's central coast, said they learned of the deal after Marcelino de Jesus Martinez, 36, asked them for help getting back his daughter after payment wasn't made.”

Yes, the man is scum and should be in jail for the rest of his life...if not executed. But just because this particular pervert is from Mexico doesn't mean it should be open season on Mexican culture. I'll be honest and say I don't like some aspects of Mexican culture...but I am critical of United States culture too! No society is perfect.

@Mitchell_Young @kbear09090I know who Wotan is and and those who follow him are usually white supremacists. Like yourself. And as much as you would like to insult me with the
Quetzalcoatl quip I am not Mexican or central American. If I was I still would not be insulted.

@kbear09090  Wotan is the Anglo-Saxon chief god, whatever the skinsies decide to name thier groups.

Mitchell_Young

@kbear09090  Wotan is the Anglo-Saxon god, like Odin in Norse languages, Lugh for the Celts, Zeus for the Greeks, and no doubt Quetzalcoatl for your ancestors.

@Mitchell_Young @FishWithoutBicycle@DonkeyHotay@ No surprise there. You have always come across as a racist neo nazi scumbag. W.O.T.A.N. is also used as an acronym for Will Of The Aryan Nation and is a favorite of white supremacists.

Not my God, my friend. I am a "free agent" when it comes to religion. And it really angers me when folks use religious texts as justification to marginalize or outright abuse certain people...usually women and gays.

How old was the "virgin" Mary when God decided to impregnate her without her consent?


Bible scholars put her age at 12-13 years old.


If it's good enough for your God, who are you to argue otherwise?
