Man charged in Baltimore County with pimping teenage girl

A Baltimore man was charged last month with allegedly pimping a teenage girl who had been reported missing in Baltimore County, officials said.

Baltimore County police working with federal authorities on a human trafficking initiative were informed that the teenage girl, whose age was not released, had been reported missing in the county and was being featured on a website known for prostitution advertisements, officials said this week. An undercover officer scheduled an appointment for June 20 with the girl, who told him the "donation" would be $200, and arrived to meet the detective in a cab with two other people.

Police charged one of the people in the cab, Abudallah Hannibal Oakley, 31, of East Baltimore with human trafficking and other charges. Police said the girl told them she met Oakley, whom she referred to as her pimp, two weeks ago and that he took her to his home, solicited her services online and kept much of the money that she made.

Oakley was being held at the Baltimore County Detention Center on $500,000 bail. No attorney was listed for him in court records.
