An illegal Mexican immigrant was pulled with a 15-year-old girl in Ohio this week— who turned out to be a New Jersey child sex slave, according to cops.
Juan Carlos Morales-Pedraza, 33, is charged with abducting and sexually assaulting the teen in Paterson, NJ. He was on his way to Chicago when he was stopped by a state trooper on the Ohio Turnpike on Tuesday for not moving over violation, cops said.
“During the stop, OSHP says the officer noticed a young female riding with an older male,” tweeted the Ohio State Highway Patrol. “Police say it was also confirmed that the man had forced the girl to perform acts on him and that the girl was being taken to Chicago from New Jersey.”
Morales – Pedraza — accused of abduction — was driving a Nissan Sentra in 2013 when he was pulled near Toledo, cops said. Both he and the girl couldn’t speak English.
It wasn’t until the teen’s information was entered into the police database by the authorities that they discovered that she was missing. State officials told reporters that Morales-Pedraza had been illegally living in the U.S. and had been deported before. He was still in the Lucas County Jail on Tuesday night.
