Panama City man arrested for child sex trafficking


GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WMBB) — A Panama City man is behind bars after a Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrest for child sex trafficking.

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office began the investigation into Damarcus King, 25, before requesting FDLE take over the case due to the multiple jurisdictions involved. Deputies say the investigation revealed King took a minor from Bay County to a hotel in Gadsden County, where he had sex with her. He also allegedly uploaded a nude image of her to a website and arranged for another man to have sex with her in the hotel room for money.
