Man gets 10 years in prison for pimping teens on drugs

EUGENE, Ore. - A man who tried to pimp a "Prosti-Tot" high on psychedelic mushrooms to an undercover sheriff's deputy for $500 an hour will spend the next decade in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Michael H. Simon sentenced Adam David Zimmer, 36, to 121 months in federal prison on Monday.

Zimmer pleaded guilty on May 15, 2012, to charges of sex trafficking of a minor and employing a minor in drug operations.

Upon release from prizon, Zimmer will serve another 10 years of post-prison supervision.

The charges stem from a Lane County Sheriff's Office drug task force investigation.

In November 2011, a deputy assigned to the Drug Enforcement Agency Task Force got a tip that Zimmer was dealing drugs to children and prostituting young girls.

In early December 2011, two 15-year-old girls told deputies about a time when they were at Zimmer’s house and he offered them cocaine, marijuana and ecstasy.

The girls also told deputies that Zimmer solicited them to work as prostitutes, telling them that he would pay them $100 every time they went on a "date."

During this time period, deputies learned that Zimmer also had an adult woman, identified as “Queen,” working for him as a prostitute, according to prosecutors.

On Dec. 5, 2011, deputies had an informant send a text message to Zimmer asking if he had any young girls available to meet at a local hotel.

Zimmer replied that he did and began speaking directly with an undercover deputy about sending two girls.

In several lengthy recorded conversations, Zimmer described how he could make several different young girls available to the deputy for prostitution, prosecutors said.

He referred to the girls as “Prosti-Tots” and said they were full service and would do whatever the deputy wanted them to do.

Zimmer later said a 15-year-old girl named “Blondie” was the only girl available and that she would cost $500 for one hour, prosecutors said.

Zimmer also told the deputy Blondie was “super loaded” from eating psilocybin mushrooms.

When the deputy told Zimmer that he had never used mushrooms before, Zimmer offered to send a bag of mushrooms as well as condoms with Blondie to the hotel - and throw in the cost of the mushrooms as part of the deal.

When Zimmer arrived at a local hotel with Blondie, he was arrested for compelling prostitution.

A search of Blondie’s person and bags produced a bag of psilocybin mushrooms and condoms, prosecutors said.
