Sex Trafficking Guilty Plea



by Elizabeth Ruiz
 
A San Antonio woman faces up to life behind bars for her role in the sex trafficking of a 15-year-old girl. 
 
Twenty-year-old Amber Doak admitted in federal court Wednesday that she enticed and encouraged the teen to engage in sexual acts for money.
 
She also admitted using a mobile phone provided by 38-year-old co-defendant Marcus Deshawn Wright to take pictures of the girl.  Wright and 21-year-old Malcom Deandre Copeland used those photos to advertise the teen on Backpage.com, a website known for providing a prostitution advertising forum under the guise of escort services.
 
Doak claims she traveled with Wright and Copeland as they transported the victim to several locations to engage in commercial sex.
She  faces 10 years to life in federal prison when she's sentenced by  Judge Fred Biery in September. 
 
Copeland and Wright also are set to go to trial next month on a charge of sex trafficking of children.
