A Pierce County man accused of trafficking girls as young as 13 for sexual purposes, turned himself in at the Pierce County Jail early this morning.

Jevante McCray, 20, who was on Washington’s Most Wanted List for his alleged crimes, turned himself in at about 1:25 a.m. Saturday, according to Tacoma Police.

Prosecutors say McCray and 18-year-old Isiah Martin were exploiting at least five under-age girls for sexual purposes.

The men were charged last week with second-degree human trafficking and multiple counts of promoting commercial sexual abuse of a minor.
