EVERETT, Wash. —

Snohomish County prosecutors have charged two men with trafficking girls as young as 13 for sex.

The Everett Herald reports (http://bit.ly/UFOZOA) that 20-year-old Jevante McCray and 18-year-old Isiah Martin were exploiting at least five minors. Authorities announced Tuesday the men were charged last week with second-degree human trafficking and multiple counts of promoting commercial sexual abuse of a minor.

Prosecutors say the men were pimps, paying for motel rooms and Internet advertising so the girls could work as prostitutes. The defendants are accused of profiting from the sexual exploitation of minors.

Martin was arrested last week. An arrest warrant was issued for McCray on Friday.

McCray and Martin were investigated in California earlier this year for assaulting a 16-year-old Puyallup girl they allegedly took to California.
