An anti-human trafficking sting led to the arrest of a 30-year-old man April 23 in Denton, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. William Adam Jonathan Smith, 30, was charged by criminal complaint with conspiracy to engage in child sex trafficking. The release alleges that Smith rented hotel rooms for sex work with clients and that he kept the money the minors made.
During the sting, investigators located a juvenile girl with an adult woman, identified in the release as Charity Cantu, engaging in prostitution. Cantu admitted that she assisted in grooming the minor for sex work at Smith’s direction.
