PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A man faces federal charges for alleged sex trafficking after being indicted by the US Attorney in the District Court of Oregon Wednesday.

Diallo Gaston was arrested in Salem after a 16-year-old girl identified him as the man who kidnapped her and forced her into prostitution. The girl, who was listed as a runaway from Portland, told police she met him on Tagged.com.

Court documents revealed Gaston was interviewed by both an FBI agent and a Portland police detective. He allegedly admitted he knew the girl was a minor, had sex with her, took pictures of her and posted an ad for her.

He also allegedly told the agents he helped other escorts and strippers because he was a good money manager.

He’s being held without bond and faces a minimum 10-year prison term if convicted.
