A jury on Wednesday delivered a guilty verdict in a tragic case involving the rape, sex trafficking, and pimping of two teenage girls on the streets of San Francisco. Jamar Geeter, 28, was found guilty by a Superior Court jury of 16 counts, and the pimp, who went by the name "Terrific," could be sentenced to 150 years in prison.
“This defendant preyed upon two children and attempted to profit off them as though they were property,” the Examiner reports District Attorney George Gascón as saying. “Human trafficking is a form of modern day slavery that will be met with firm consequences.”
The details of the case are pretty horrific, and involve Geeter apparently drugging a 14-year-old girl after chatting her up at a Geneva and Mission street Muni stop. The Chronicle reports that after likely raping her (the victim can't remember what happened, but woke up naked and sore), Geeter pimped her on Capp Street and around Polk and Ellis Streets. That victim eventually escaped Geeter, the paper notes, only to be grabbed by another pimp who then trafficked her in Oakland. She was eventually discovered by Daly City Police, as she had been reported as a missing person.
Geeter wasn't done, however, and the Chronicle details how he grabbed a 16-year-old girl who had developed a crush on his teenage friend. According to the girl, Greeter disabled her cell phone and raped her before forcing her to prostitute herself. The young girl managed to alert her family, and her father, in a desperate bid to get her home, kidnapped Geeter's teenage friend, held him hostage, and negotiated a hostage swap to get his daughter back without the assistance of the police.
DNA evidence linked Geeter to the 16-year-old victim, reports KRON 4.
Geeter is set to be sentenced on March 24.
