A prominent Ferguson activist who has assisted the Black Lives Matter movement is charged with prostitution and human trafficking of a minor after he was allegedly caught in a sex sting.
Wade, 33, drew national attention earlier this month after The Daily Caller reported that he was arrested on April 25 on sex trafficking charges. Police in College Park, Md. say that Wade pimped out a 17-year-old girl using the website. She told police that she gave Wade all of the money she was paid to have sex and that Wade knew she was only 17.
In addition to being an accused child sex trafficker, Black Lives Matter activist Charles Wade is a financial “scammer,” says a lawyer for a St. Louis real estate developer who lost more than $10,000 after Wade skipped town last year without paying rent.
