Four Convicted in Violent Human Trafficking and Sexual Assault Case

Four co-defendants in a violent human trafficking and sexual assault case pled no contest and have been found guilty of multiple crimes. After months of investigation by the Oakland Police Department and the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office, four men were charged with the trafficking and sexual assaults of four teenage girls, ages 13 through 17, in Oakland.

Defendant Isaiah Seymour was charged with trafficking three different teens along with 15 counts of sexual assault-related offenses. Defendant Gary Holt was charged with trafficking another teenage girl, along with 6 sexual assault-related offenses pertaining to two of the victims. Defendant Delvahn Mosley Davis was charged with 15 sexual assault-related offenses pertaining to three of the teenage victims. Defendant Matt Brito was charged with 12 sexual assault-related offenses pertaining to one of the victims. All four men entered pleas during the course of the preliminary hearing, which took place in the first two weeks of March 2015.

All of the victims showed tremendous bravery in coming forward and cooperating in this prosecution.

In the first five months of 2014, defendant Seymour (using force and fear) trafficked teenage girls between the ages of 13 and 17. The young victims were made to sell their bodies to men for sex on the streets of Oakland. He also sexually assaulted multiple teenage victims. Defendant Holt, working independent of Seymour, forced a 16 year old girl into the sex trade and, along with the co-defendants, sexually assaulted teenaged victims. Defendants Davis was convicted of raping two of the teen victims, while defendant Brito was convicted of raping one of the teen victims.

Pursuant to the negotiated disposition, it is expected defendant Seymour will be sentenced to 24 years in state prison for human trafficking and rape related offenses; defendant Davis will be sentenced to 15 years in state prison for rape related offenses; defendant Brito will be sentenced to 10 years in state prison for rape related offenses; defendant Holt will be sentenced to 15 years in state prison for rape related offenses. All four Defendants remain in custody until their sentencing date on June 19, 2015.
