Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Phoenix, Arizona, man convicted of Attempted Commercial Sex Trafficking of a Minor and Attempted Enticement of a Minor Using the Internet was sentenced on July 8, 2021, by Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Carlocito Slim, age 35, was sentenced to two 10-year terms in federal prison, to run concurrently.  Slim was also sentenced to two 5-year terms of supervised release, to run concurrently, and was ordered to pay a total of $200 in special assessments to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Slim was arrested and federally indicted as a result of an undercover sex trafficking operation conducted during the 2017 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, targeting internet predators.  Following multiple text messages with a person Slim believed to be a pimp for a 15 year-old prostitute, but who was in fact an undercover agent, he proceeded to negotiate the time and place he would meet the minor to engage in unlawful sex acts.  When Slim went to the pre-determined location to meet the minor’s pimp, he was instead met by law enforcement agents and placed under arrest.  Slim was found guilty following a two-day federal court trial on March 10, 2021.

Slim was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
