Jacksonville, Florida – United States Attorney A. Lee Bentley, III announces the return of an indictment charging Lisa C. Glass (38, Jacksonville) with child sex trafficking. If convicted, she faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years, up to life, in federal prison.
According to the indictment, Glass recruited, enticed, harbored, transported, provided, and maintained a juvenile female for the purpose of engaging the girl in commercial sexual activity.
An indictment is merely a formal charge that a defendant has committed one or more violations of federal criminal law, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless, and until, proven guilty.
This case was investigated by the Northeast Florida Human Trafficking Task Force that includes investigators from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mac D. Heavener, III.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
