Registered Sex Offender From Camden, NJ, Admits Sex Trafficking Minors
Federal authorities say a man from Camden has admitted to trafficking three minors to engage in commercial sex acts and now potentially faces life in prison.
On Wednesday, 33-year-old Semaj A. Gilmore pleaded guilty in Camden federal court to three counts of a superseding indictment charging him with sex trafficking minors.
According to U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger's office, from September 2020 to April 2021 Gilmore transported, at various times, three minors, all under the age of 18, from Philadelphia to New Jersey, knowing they would engage in a commercial sex act at his direction.
Each count of sex trafficking of a minor is punishable by 10 years to life in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Sentencing is scheduled for September 5th.
Sellinger credited special agents of the FBI, the Mount Laurel Police Department, and the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office for their assistance in this case.
