Lancaster Man Faces 26 years in Prison for Human Trafficking and Assault

LANCASTER-(VVNEWS.com):  A Lancaster man is facing up to 26 years in prison after entering a no contest plea for charges related the the disappearance of an 18-month-old girl that was later found in a shed the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said. The Lancaster woman female that was also involved in the incident also entered a no contest plea and will face up to 6 years.

The couple, identified as 34-year-old Brandon Michael Wynn and 45-year-old Regina Renee Estorga forced an unknown number of women into prostitution. On July 16, 2015 Wynn broke into the home of one of his victims and assaulted her.

“On July 18, 2015, Wynn and Estorga took the same woman to a remote area in the desert where they beat her, doused her with bleach and left her naked and tied up,” the prosecutor said. The victim’s 18-month-old daughter was left in the care of one of the other human trafficking victims. When Wynn became aware of the Amber Alert he took the toddler to a shed in Palmdale and left her there.

On Thursday, January 7th Wynn pleaded no contest to two counts  of human trafficking with a great bodily injury allegation and pimping and one count each of first-degree residential robbery, assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, assault with a deadly weapon, bleach, and attempted murder.

Estorga also pleaded no contest to one count of kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon, bleach. Both defendants are due back at the Antelope Valley Superior Court for sentencing on February 4th.
