California Marine Recruiter Charged With Pimping a 14-year-old Girl

Police have arrested a U.S. Marine Corps recruiter in Riverside County, California on charges of felony pimping and kidnapping and are looking into whether he used sex with a 14-year-old girl to entice potential recruits.

Staff Sgt. Bryan Damone Cunningham, 33, of San Pedro pleaded not guilty to seven felonies last Thursday after police in Orange discovered the teenage girl in a car with Cunningham and two other men. The two men, ages 18 and 19, were potential Marine recruits, police said.

The girl told police that she met Cunningham online and had sex with all three men. She also told police Cunningham wanted her to work as a prostitute and had tried to take her to Los Angeles County against her will. Police said they are trying to determine if Cunningham may have been using the girl to entice Marine recruits.

Cunningham is being held on $1 million bail and has a court hearing June 18, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney's office. The two potential Marine recruits face felony charges on having sex with a minor.
