Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Sex Trafficking a 16-Year-Old Girl

Deondre Demetris Porter from Victorville, California, was handed a 10-year prison sentence in federal court in San Diego for sex trafficking a 16-year-old girl who was physically assaulted and thrown out of a moving car during an escape attempt.

Porter, along with his codefendant Aaliyah White, was indicted by a federal grand jury in May 2023. He pleaded guilty in February 2024 to one count of sex trafficking of a minor. The victim had been recruited by Porter just three days before the assault, which took place on Easter Sunday in April 2023.


During that brief period, Porter trafficked the minor victim, moving her from Victorville to San Bernardino and then to San Diego. In San Diego, Porter forced the minor to engage in commercial sex in hotel rooms and also walk Roosevelt Avenue in National City to attract commercial sex buyers. White assisted Porter in overseeing the minor victim’s commercial sex activities.

On April 9, 2023, the San Diego Police Department received a 911 call and reports from witnesses about a girl being thrown from a vehicle, partially dressed, and physically harmed. The minor victim was promptly taken to a hospital due to her injuries, where she was treated and interviewed by officers from the San Diego Human Trafficking Task Force. She immediately identified Porter and White as her attackers and traffickers.

The investigation revealed that the vehicle from which the victim was thrown, stripped of some clothing, and ultimately ejected belonged to Porter. Further inquiries uncovered commercial sex advertisements by Porter promoting the minor victim, falsely listed as an adult, for commercial sex on the websites Private Delights and MegaPersonals. After communicating with commercial sex buyers who responded to the ads about the minor victim, Porter instructed the victim to engage in sexual activities with the buyers in San Diego. Surveillance footage from hotels also confirmed Porter’s trafficking of the minor victim.
