    Three Arrested for Child Trafficking and Pandering

    First Judicial District Attorney Pete Weir announced that one man and two women have been arrested for their alleged participation in trafficking and pandering of a child in Lakewood. Roger Miguel McLamb, DOB: 9-23-78; Susan Asha Johnson, DOB: 4-4-90; and Tracy Lynn Wilson, DOB: 6-25-80 were arrested earlier this week.

    Between May 1, 2013 and July 4, 2013, McLamb, Johnson and Wilson are alleged to have been involved in prostituting a 15-year-old female for commercial gain. The teen was provided a place to live and clothing. In exchange she was coerced into having sex with strangers for money.

    McLamb, the teen and Johnson were living at Wilson’s house at 11331 W. Florida Avenue in Lakewood. The teen lived in the basement with McLamb.

    According to court records, Johnson and Wilson would drive McLamb and the teen to different motels, including the Denver West Inn in Lakewood, where they would meet customers and the teen provided sex to strangers for money. Sexual partners were solicited through Backpage.com and other online escort sites. The teen estimated that she earned $1,000 a week. All the money was given to McLamb.

    “These cases are very complex. Young victims, such as the teen in this case, often believe the pimp loves them and will take care of them,” said Weir, “Living under these conditions a child loses the ability to differentiate between love and exploitation.”

    On July 4, 2013, Denver Police contacted a car in which the teen was a passenger. They found that she had a probation violation warrant outstanding. They took the teen into custody. Concerned that she might be a runaway, police contacted the FBI’s Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Innocence Lost Task Force. The Innocence Lost Task Force specializes in these involved investigations.

    McLamb was arrested for Trafficking of a Child (F2); Pimping of a Child (F3); Soliciting of a Child for Prostitution (F3); Pandering of Child (F3); Procurement of a Child (F3); Keeping a Place of Prostitution (F3) and Contributing to the Delinquency of Minor (F4). He was on federal parole at the time of the offense. He is being held on $10,000 cash only bond.

    Johnson was arrested for Pandering of a Child (F3), Procurement of a Child (F3), Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor (F4) and Menacing (F5). Bond has been set at $5,000 cash.

    Wilson was arrested for Procurement of a Child (F3) and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor (F4). Her bond was set at $2,000 cash.
