If you have any information on internet child exploitation, please call the Internet Crimes Against Children Tip Line at 801-281-1211 OR call the Human Trafficking Hotline at 1-888-373-7888.

A Kearns, Utah man was charged with human trafficking after the 14-year-old victim spoke up about the violent sexual relationship he had with her as he used her to sell child pornography. The actions, which could only be described as rape and imprisonment, involved a 22-year-old male who would later sell the pornographic videos and images on social media.

The arrest happened during President Trump's crackdowns on pedophilia and child and human trafficking. The operation, dubbed SECURE Strike Force, was successful in taking down this sexual predator. 

According to the Utah Attorney General's press release:

Last week, the Utah Attorney General’s Office SECURE Strike Force charged a man from Kearns, Utah with one count of human trafficking of a child, a first-degree felony, and six counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

Craig Thomas Defa, 27, previously pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a 16 or 17-year-old in November 2019. In January 2020, Defa was sentenced to 364 days in the Salt Lake county Jail, was placed on probation for 48 months, and was required to register as a sex offender. . . 

During the relationship, Defa allegedly made pornographic videos involving the victim and sold them through social media networks. Defa allegedly told the victim she would not need to work as she could sell the pornographic videos, despite the victim never receiving any money.

The victim stated that Defa would encourage her to recruit customers through online ads and sell pornographic images and videos of herself. Investigators reviewed the images and videos taken by Defa on her phone and confirmed they were taken prior to June 2019 when the victim was a minor.

Way to go, Trump. Get those pedophiles and sex traffickers out of the picture. The children thank you.
