Human trafficking defendant heading to trial
July 20, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Maria Jiminez

Sate Jones

One of two people charged with human trafficking for allegedly prostituting four women, including one underage girl, at a South San Francisco motel will stand trial on the felony count.

Maria Carolina Jiminez, 26, has pleaded not guilty but was held to answer on the charge after waiving a preliminary hearing on the evidence. Co-defendant Sate Stallone Jones, 26, moved to continue his preliminary hearing and he returns to court Aug. 27.

Both Jiminez and Jones, each of San Francisco, were arrested in mid-February at the La Quinta Inn in South San Francisco after being alerted by a clerk who’d undergone training about recognizing human trafficking. A man later identified as Jones reportedly dropped off two women one night and two women the next between Feb. 15 and Feb. 16.

The women reportedly told police the couple gave them illegal drugs to keep them working all night and sometimes deprived them of food. When the man returned with a woman, identified as Jiminez, to collect the four others, they were arrested.

Each defendant remain in custody on $350,000 bail each. Jiminez returns to court Aug. 1 to enter a Superior Court plea and possibly set a trial date.
