According to a press release from the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, Elan Daniel Seagraves, 34, of Sacramento, was charged with human trafficking of a minor and pimping of a minor.

Early Christmas day, deputies were contacted by a 17-year-old woman who stated she was a victim of a sexual assault and was being forced into human trafficking. The victim told deputies she was hiding in the backyard of a house along the 5900 block of Clover Manor Way. 

Upon arrival, deputies found Seagraves in a car with another woman, who was later determined to be 17 years old, as well. During their investigation, deputies learned both 17-year-olds were victims of human trafficking. 

Seagraves was previously employed:

  • As youth soccer coach at Kennedy High School in Sacramento.
  • As a coach and referee in various local youth soccer leagues.
  • As an UBER/LYFT driver.

Seagraves remains in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail on $2 million bail.
