Posted by Fay Arfa | May 04, 2018 | 0 Comments

A 40-year-old man was sentenced today to 47 years and four months in state prison for trafficking a teenager and sexually abusing her, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced.

On April 20, a jury found Jeffrey Floyd Beadle (dob 6/20/77) guilty of 11 felony counts in case NA105727: one count each of human trafficking of a minor for a commercial sex act; pimping a minor 16 years of age or older; pandering by encouraging a minor over age 16; unlawful sexual intercourse; and seven counts of dissuading a witness from testifying. Jurors also found true an allegation that the defendant personally inflicted great bodily injury on the teenage victim.

Deputy District Attorney Christmas Brookens of the Victim Impact Program prosecuted the case.

In 2014, Beadle met a 16-year-old girl on social media and the two began living with each other, the prosecutor said. During their time together, Beadle frequently had sex with the teen and began instructing her to work in prostitution, according to the prosecutor.

On Oct. 21, 2015, an undercover officer arranged for prostitution services on a website and was told to meet with the teenager at a Lakewood location, the prosecutor said.

When the undercover officer arrived, he was guided to a Chevy Blazer, where Beadle was inside. While at the vehicle, the officer exchanged money with Beadle, the prosecutor said. At that point, police surrounded the area, arrested Beadle and took the girl into custody.

During the investigation, police learned that Beadle was a registered sex offender and on parole during the incident, the prosecutor said. Furthermore, law enforcement learned Beadle had twice impregnated the girl, the prosecutor added.

The case was investigated by the Long Beach Police Department
