#sextrafficking | Federal Prosecutions Demonstrate A Sustained Effort To Bring Law And Order To The Tenderloin District Of San Francisco | USAO-NDCA | #tinder | #pof | #match | romancescams | #scams



SAN FRANCISCO- On August 7, 2019, U.S. Attorney David L. Anderson announced a new federal initiative to address crime in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District. The program, called the Federal Initiative for the Tenderloin (FIT), has brought together the resources of more than 15 federal law enforcement agencies to combat endemic drug trafficking, firearms offenses, robberies and other crime in the neighborhood. U.S. Attorney Anderson pledged to assign 15 federal prosecutors to handle cases brought against offenders violating federal law in the neighborhood.

“The Tenderloin is a wonderful neighborhood mostly populated by good people leading law-abiding lives,” said U.S. Attorney Anderson.  “It is not fair to tolerate lawlessness in the Tenderloin that we simply would not accept in other neighborhoods in San Francisco.  The good people of the Tenderloin should have equal access to schools, stores, transportation, and other services without having to run a gauntlet of crime.”     

The Tenderloin neighborhood encompasses about 50 square blocks of downtown San Francisco.  Generally, it is bounded on the north by Geary Street, on the east by Powell Street, on the south by Mission Street, and on the west by Van Ness Avenue.  The FIT initiative has prioritized federal charges for criminal misconduct with a nexus to the Tenderloin.

Since announcing the initiative, cases have involved a broad array of criminal conduct ranging from mail theft to attempted murder.  Cases brought against defendants also include charges of bank fraud, escape, firearms offenses, transportation of child pornography and conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of a minor.  So far, 244 defendants have been charged and 114 have been sentenced.  Sixteen cases were resolved in just the past six months, including the following:
