A New York man with multiple aliases who prostituted a 17-year-old girl using a stolen minivan in Calhoun County, will appear in Calhoun Magistrate Court for a preliminary hearing.|
James Robert Hammond, 40, of Whitesboro, N.Y., will appear appear on a number of misdemeanors and felony charges relating to incidents that took place in southern Calhoun during September.
Hammond has been charged with four counts of felony sexual abuse by a parent, guardian or custodian, one count of felony use of minor in filming sexually explicit conduct and misdemeanor obstruction, receiving support from prostitution, four counts of running a house of ill-fame or assignation.
Trooper D.C. Moore tried to establish Hammond's identity but the man gave a false name because of previous warrants issued Charleston and New York.
A Kanawha County warrant for Hamond's arrest was issued in 2007 for failure to register as a sex offender, but it was unclear what charges had been brought against him in New York.
Hammond used a stolen mini-van with New York tags for prostitution, pimping the girl out of the van, according to the criminal complaint.
State Police say that at least three men had sexual contact with the female.
