Cary police say man forced 17-year-old girl into prostitution

From staff reportsDecember 11, 2013 

— An undercover operation at a motel near RDU International Airport resulted in police charging a 21-year-old man with being the pimp for a 17-year-old prostitute.

Marcus Kevvon Gibson, who gave police no permanent address, was charged with sexual servitude with a child victim and promoting prostitution, according to an arrest warrant.

Police arrested Gibson at the Country Inn & Suites at 201 Airgate Drive.

According to language in the warrant, Gibson showed “reckless disregard” of the consequences of prostitution when he “knowingly subjected” the girl to it.

The warrant also said Gibson received a portion of the money the girl collected.

The girl was uncommunicative with detectives, Capt. Don Hamilton said, and police had not been able to determine where she was from.

Gibson was being held in the Wake County Detention Center in lieu of $250,000 bail and was scheduled for a court appearance Wednesday.
