Santa Rosa police arrest man, 20, suspected of pimping, sex with teens

Santa Rosa police last week arrested a Rohnert Park man suspected of pimping one woman and having sex acts with teens, and they are investigating further allegations, according to a police official.

Laiken James, 20, was arrested on suspicion of sexual intercourse with a minor, oral copulation with a minor and pimping, all felony counts, according to Santa Rosa police Sgt. Terry Anderson. James was booked into the Sonoma County Jail and subsequently released after posting $55,000 bail.

Detectives in November began investigating James as part of human trafficking case, according to Anderson.

Anderson declined to release details, including the ages of the victims, but said two teens were involved in the initial investigation.
