PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – A grand jury has indicted a man on dozens of charges related to a human sex trafficking investigation.
On Sunday, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office announced that a grand jury returned a 65-count indictment against 24-year-old Izaak Shaquilie Blocker.
Blocker has been charged with charged with four counts of compelling prostitution, three counts of assault in the fourth degree – constituting domestic violence, three counts of felony strangulation – constituting domestic violence, nine counts of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, two counts of promoting prostitution, 10 counts of rape in the first degree, 10 counts of sodomy in the first degree, 20 counts of sexual abuse in the second degree, two counts of unlawful tattooing of a minor and two counts of unlawful delivery of cocaine to a minor.
