I am writing this petition on behalf of my brother, Robert Walker, who is falsely being accused of violating the human trafficking law. My goal is to make the residents of California aware of the unintended consequences, hoping it would help the real sex trafficking victims instead of the non-forced prostitutes. Millions of US Government tax dollars are being spent to fight a crime that is extremely rare in the state of California. The US government assumes that all prostitutes on earth are sex trafficked slaves who are abducted and forced into sexual exploitation against their will. This is not true among most cases. It Is our goal to bring you all the important information which disproves the lies told by the government and prohibitionists regarding human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

    Compton, CA- On July 11, 2013 Robert Jerome Walker was arrested and booked by the Long Beach Police Department on four counts of human trafficking a minor; one count of lewd act upon a minor; and one count of dissuading a witness. Robert was arrested by a Detective Satwan Johnson and his partner Kenneth Turner, who has had it out for him since 2012. Detective Johnson has created a case against my brother from hearsay and managed to persuade the Long Beach Police Department into filing these outrageous charges. He spent 32 days in a Los Angeles county jail with a bond set at 1 million dollars. My family came up with the money and to do that we had to put up our family house so we could bail him out. On August 11, 2013 my brother managed to come home, but when he came home, he had to wear an ankle monitor and pay for his freedom, for a crime he didn't commit.

     On March 26, 2014 (8 months later) He had a preliminary hearing my brother was remanded back into custody and this time the charge of lewd act upon a minor was dropped and his bail was raised and set at 4.2 million dollars. November 13, 2015, Robert was tried and convicted of all charges. As of today, Robert has spent the last 3 years fighting for his freedom. For over 5 years my family has been getting harassed by the Compton Sheriff Department. They've raided my family's tobacco establishment so many times claiming that there were drugs being sold out of our business. They even tried to get my brother for robbing a prostitute. Really?? Our family has gone through enough and it's time that we take a stand for not only my brother but ourselves as well. My brother is a well known rapper and the Compton Sheriff's are very aware of his music career. Robert's music and these victims non credible testimonies were the only evidence that they used against him. They would pull him over for no apparent reason to search him and his car, break things in his car and to do irritating things like rap his songs just to make fun of him.

      Proposition 35 is taking the eye away from actual human trafficking victims and focusing on consented prostitution, it relies on profiting off the criminalization of juveniles, and forces prostitutes to lie about being victims so that the state and these "victims" can be fully compensated. Keep in mind these detectives said that Robert was allegedly the biggest pimp in Compton have made it a priority to send Robert's case to Long Beach due to the fact that they have a high conviction rate. Detective Johnson and his partner Turner have been straining so hard to ruin my brother’s reputation and trash his name by making up numerous lies, saying my brother led a multi million dollar prostitution ring and that he took these so called victims across state lines when these girls were never even caught with him, there's no pictures, videos or phone conversation to even link these girls to him which makes it all so confusing. My brother is in jail due to hearsay. While my brother is in jail suffering, these witnesses are still on the streets maintaining and doing the same actions, and putting more and more innocent people behind bars. I’m not saying that there aren’t any actual human trafficking victims out there, I just wonder why instead of spending thousands, maybe even millions of dollars to put innocent people in prison, it should actually be getting used to help the real victims of actual human trafficking. 

I have re-created this petition so that I can bring my brother home. We will not give up without a fight. So please share this petition with your family, friends, neighbors co-workers any and everybody that you know. If this has happened to someone in your family, then you understand what our family is going through. For those who really know Robert, know that he didn't what their saying he did.
