ADELPHI, Md. (WUSA) -- An Adelphi, Md. man was arrested after allegedly transporting a 15-year-old female prostitute from Maryland to Northern Virginia to have sex with clients, according to the Department of Justice.
The girlfriend of Julio Cesar Revolorio Ramos allegedly recruited the 15-year-old for Ramos' prostitution business in January 2009, according to court records. For a year and half the victim reportedly lived with Ramos and his girlfriend in Hyattsville and was prostituted several times.
Twenty-eight-year-old Ramos also allegedly transported a woman to Annandale and Falls Church, Va. locations in August of this year.
In August, an informant called Ramos and requested a prostitute to be delivered to a home in Falls Church, according to the affidavit. About a half an hour later, ICE Special Agents who were stationed outside the location reportedly saw a car arrived with a male and female inside. According to the affidavit, when they ran the vehicle's license plate through their databases, agents found out the car belonged to Ramos.
The informant also received calls asking for more specific directions to the home because the caller couldn't find it and was in a hurry since other people were waiting for prostitutes to be delivered, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit shows agents followed the vehicle to Annandale where they saw a woman leave an apartment building and get into the car. The car then drove to Falls Church, where she got out and went into the building. Ten minutes later, she returned to the car which then got on Leesburg Pike headed toward the ramp for Interstate 495 North. A Fairfax County police officer stopped the car for an obstructed rear license plate and the driver was identified as Ramos.
Ramos then reportedly let officers search his vehicle and they found condoms in the car. Ramos was given a summons for the traffic charge and released. The woman who was with him was arrested on "administrative charges." Agents reportedly found condoms, receipts for condoms, personal lubrication and $884 in her purse.
Authorities say Ramos is originally from Guatemala and is living illegally in the United States. He faces a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted of the charges against him.
