6th person pleads guilty in teen exploitation case involving runaway

A 28-year-old man has pleaded guilty in Denver involving a case of trafficking a 13-year-old runaway for prostitution.

Socrates "Chrome" Packer pleaded guilty, on March 28, to human trafficking and attempted sexual assault on a child.  He will face up to 18 years in prison when he is sentenced in June.  Packer was one of numerous people charged in the case, according to Lynn Kimbrough with the Denver District Attorney's case.

Cyril "Jazz" Packer, also 28, pleaded guilty last December to pimping of a child and is facing 15 years in prison when he is sentenced in April.

Desiree "Dez" Gallimore, 24, pleaded guilty earlier to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and prostitution and will also be sentenced in April.

Mack McCray, 43, pleaded guilty earlier to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to two years of probation.

Earl Williams, 25, pleaded guilty earlier to contributing to the delinquency of a minor and was sentenced to a suspended six year prison sentence with four years of probation.

Hector Garcia, 49, is charged with child prostitution,  two counts of sexual assault on a child (F4), and patronizing a child prostitute.  He has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled for a disposition hearing next month.

The allegations are that it was Williams who approached the 13-year-old runaway in 2012, and introduced her to McCray and Socrates Packer, who was accused of sexually assaulting her. 

Cyril Packer and Desiree Gallimore made the victim available for prostitution in locations in the Denver and Colorado Springs areas over a period of time, according to the Denver District Attorney's Office. 

McCray assisted by transporting the victim to a location for later acts of prostitution, and the Garcia is accused of sexually assaulting the runaway, according to Kimbrough.
