Sioux Falls man pleads guilty to pimping charges

August 21, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls man has pleaded guilty to pimping and prostitution charges in federal court.

The Argus Leader reports 26-year-old Jaquon Nathaniel Duckworth filed a guilty plea agreement on Friday.

Duckworth is pleading guilty to transporting a person with the intent to have that person engage in prostitution or a criminal sexual activity. He faces up to 10 years in prison.

A sentencing hearing has not been scheduled.

Duckworth was arrested and charged in Minnehaha County in December 2017 after police found online advertisements involving prostitution of an adult woman that seemed to indicate human trafficking.

Duckworth has a previous conviction of pimping and promoting prostitution in Sioux Falls and Minnesota.
