Human trafficking suspect pleads not guilty
July 03, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Shayne Lusalah

A 21-year-old Fresno man accused of prostituting a woman in various California counties including San Mateo pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from an alleged attack on her in a local motel when she was too tired to perform another act.

San Mateo police arrested Shayne Joshua Lusalah June 30 after responding to a call from a Bayshore Boulevard motel where he was allegedly prostituting a 24-year-old woman whom he met through a mutual friend. Lusalah arranged her clients using an online site and kept all her money and cellphone, according to prosecutors.

At about 1 a.m. June 30, the woman reportedly tried calling the motel’s front desk for help because he wanted her to turn another trick and she was tired. Lusalah heard her call and beat and kicked her repeatedly, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Lusalah then reportedly threw her from the room along with her personal belongings and broke a large glass window in the front of the room. The woman ran to the front desk which contacted police.

In court, Lusalah asked for a court-appointed attorney and pleaded not guilty to human trafficking, pimping, assault and vandalism. He did not waive his right to a speedy trial and returns to court July 14.

Bail was set at $250,000 and Lusalah remains in custody.
