Shreveport Man Pleads Guilty to Sex Trafficking
A Shreveport man faces a life prison term after pleading guilty to sex trafficking.
According to U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley's office, 40-year-old Zayne Ghandi Anderson pled guilty in Shreveport Federal Court to one count of sex trafficking of a minor following an investigation by the FBI Violent Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Anderson was arrested after undercover law enforcement agents responded to his online advertisement for prostitution. Agents met up with a 16-year-old girl, and learned that Anderson had posted the ad and set up the meeting where the minor agreed to have commercial sex. He was arrested after arriving to pick up the girl.
Anderson faces 10 years to life in prison, five years to life of supervised release and a $250,000 fine. He's also required to register as a sex offender. He'll be sentenced October 14.
