PARKVILLE, Md. - A Parkville man and registered sex offender pleaded guilty Friday to sex trafficking a minor, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Baltimore said.
Rodney Hubert, also known as Noah, 39, of Parkville, could face almost 11 years in prison for recruiting underage girls for prostitution. Hubert also offered a finder's fee to young prostitutes if they found additional girls to prostitute for them.
Prosecutors said Hubert took explicit photos of girls, which he posted on websites with ads for prostitution. He also brought girls to a home in Parkville and taught them how to use a phone app to communicate with possible customers and avoid detection by law enforcement.
Hubert sought a 19-year-old associate to work for him as a prostitute beginning in December 2012. Hubert offered her a commission to recruit a 16-year-old Baltimore resident to prostitute for him. The 16-year-old lived with Hubert and had sex with customers as directed by Hubert.
Hubert also offered the 16-year-old girl $400 to take provocative photos, but never paid her and posted the photos online instead.
As part of his plea agreement, Hubert will serve between 168 and 262 months in prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release. U.S. District Judge George L. Russell III has scheduled sentencing for Aug. 1 at 2 p.m.
