California Couple, Eva Christian and Robert Duncan Charged with Sex Trafficking of a Child

Eva Symone Christian, 22, of Sacramento, was arrested on June 14, 2019, and Robert Pierre Duncan, 24, of Galt, was arrested by FBI agents on May 31, 2019. Duncan and Christian are charged in a two-count indictment, unsealed on June 14, 2019, that was returned by a federal grand jury in Sacramento on May 30, 2019. The indictment charges Duncan and Christian with conspiring to engage in sex trafficking, and sex trafficking of a child, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.

According to court documents, between September and October 2018, Duncan and Christian recruited, transported, harbored, and maintained a minor victim, knowing that the minor would be caused to engage in prostitution.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, California Department of Justice, Sacramento Police Department, Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, and the Oakland Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys André M. Espinosa and Brian A. Fogerty are prosecuting the case.

If convicted of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking, Duncan and Christian face a maximum statutory penalty of life in prison, and a $250,000 fine. If convicted of sex trafficking of a child, Duncan and Christian face a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years in prison and a maximum statutory penalty of life in prison, and a maximum fine of $250,000. Any sentence, however, would be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables. The charges are only allegations; the defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
