Oakland, CA – District Attorney Pamela Price announced that one of her sexual assault prosecution team members secured the conviction of Ricky Levi (31) on a felony charge, human trafficking of an adult. 

On January 4, 2024, the defendant accepted an 8-year plea bargain reached by the prosecution and the defense. Mr. Levi is accused of convincing his domestic partner to sell her body for his financial gain. He then trafficked her between Oakland and Los Angeles. The facts of the case include that the defendant physically and sexually assaulted his victim, vandalized her property, and brandished a firearm toward her. 

“Our dedicated prosecution team is committed to preventing human trafficking, raising awareness about this form of modern-day slavery, and doing what we can to combat it,” said DA Price. “We are taking a concerted approach to addressing this issue. Mr. Levi is among those convicted by my office for human trafficking in the month of January and demonstrates that in 2024, we are starting the year doing as much as we can to prosecute and convict anyone guilty of trafficking children and adults in Alameda County.” 

Ricky Levi will return to court on March 11, 2024, where he is expected be sentenced to 8 years in state prison.
