A 21-year-old man was found guilty by a Jefferson County Jury of four counts for pimping a 17-year-old girl.
In addition to the charge of pimping a child, Cravaughn Lacrae Maloy was found guilty of patronizing a prostituted child, keeping a place of child prostitution and inducement of child prostitution.
The sex trafficking incidents occurred between June 23 and July 1, 2014.
According to reports, Maloy met the teen, a runaway, near a liquor store on West Colfax in Lakewood in June 2014. He took her to the apartment he shared with Alicia Sykes, 22, and gave her a place to sleep.
Maloy told the teen she have to prostitute for her to be able to stay with him. Sykes then took photos of the girl in lingerie and posted them on websites used to solicit men to have sex with the teen.
Maloy and Sykes took calls from customers who responded to the posts. They arranged meeting locations and prices for men to engage in sexual activity with the girl.
The money was given to Maloy.
Maloy was arrested and charged by the District Attorney's Human Trafficking Unit.
Sykes was also arrested and charged with the same counts as Maloy.
Syked pleaded guilty to pimping and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Despite prosecutors' requests for jail as a condition for probation, she was sentenced to straight five years probation in Feb. 2016.
Sykes agreed to testify at Maloy's trial in exchange for the other counts being dismissed.
Maloy's sentencing is set for Nov. 21.
