A Vancouver man accused of pimping girls as young as 14 years old has been charged with two additional offences after allegedly trying to contact one of his victims for the second time.
Twenty-eight-year-old Reza Moazami was arrested in jail on Dec. 18 after allegedly contacting one of his victims through other people.
A 22-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man were also arrested in connection with the offence.
This is the second time he has been accused of trying to contact one of his alleged victims.
In August, he was charged with breaching his conditions and possessing electronic devices.
It is unknown whether the victim he is accused of contacting is the same person in each instance.
Moazami is accused of luring 11 young women and underage girls into prostitution. He has been charged with 38 counts, including living on the avails of a juvenile, sexual interference, sexual exploitation and trafficking minors – the latter of which carries a minimum jail sentence of five years.
None of the allegations against Moazami have been proven in court, and a trial date has yet to be set.
