An Upper Marlboro man pleaded guilty to transporting a minor with intent to engage in prostitution in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt on Wednesday.
Troy Walker, also known as Caveman, hosted sex parties where a 17-year-old girl engaged in sexual acts with guests from April 1 to Sept. 15, 2012, in Prince George’s County, according to court documents.
Walker, 48, met the teenage girl through a friend, who also worked at parties hosted by Walker, in March 2012. Walker asked the girl to work for him at a party he was hosting for Quest For Fire.
The parties hosted by Walker were advertised as sex parties or “gang bangs” on the internet. Interested individuals would text Walker at the cell phone number listed in the ad, and Walker would text back the party’s location. Guests paid for entry to a residence, which would allow them to engage in sexual acts with girls provided by Walker, according to Walker’s plea agreement.
In August 2012, Walker rented an apartment for the victim and had her engage in sex acts with guests at his parties. The victim’s photo was also posted in ads for the parties on the internet. Walker provided transportation for the victim to the parties, which included transportation from Washington, D.C., to Maryland. According to the victim, Walker assaulted her several times.
Walker must register as a sex offender in the place where he resides, where he is an employee, and where he is a student, under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
He faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and a maximum of life in prison, said Rod Rosenstein, U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland. U.S. District Judge Peter J. Messitte scheduled sentencing for Aug. 14.
