Anchorage Man Convicted on All Counts of Sex Trafficking Minors and Child Pornography

My Comments:
Alaska has the highest rate of sexual assault in the U.S., nearly four times the national average. I am encouraged to see our State putting more resources into these horrific and damaging crimes, but so much in our state needs to be done! As a state we invest so little in helping victims heal in our state, leaving organizations to scrap for donations and corporate funds to stay afloat. I feel for these girls, but I am glad they are free and their healing to begin.

Report:
ANCHORAGE – An Anchorage man was convicted on five counts of sex trafficking of minors, three counts of production of child pornography and two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The verdict came after a three-day federal bench trial with Senior U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Beistline.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, between mid-October 2018 and December 1, 2018, Tristan Jamal Grant, aka “Goo,” 35, conspired with another person to traffic two minors, a 15-year-old female and a 17-year-old female. Both minors were runaways who stayed with Grant at his co-conspirator’s apartment. While at the apartment, they created an online advertisement that was used to market the minors. Grant then assisted his co-conspirator in trafficking the victims; encouraging them to perform sex acts for money; serving as protection for the minors and driving one of the minors to a date to perform sex acts. Additionally, Grant produced child pornography with one of the minors on two separate occasions.

Absoluty fucking despicable that someone would hurt a child like that. I saw CSAM on the internet once (made an annoynumos tip to the feds) and I haven't been the same since. I'm glad they caught that monster
