Gibson pimped the teen out of Orange and San Bernardino counties.
The girl attempted to flee from the defendant on May 30 of last year, and when he later tracked her down he raped her, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
When she encountered law enforcement in San Bernardino County on June 11 of last year she told them what happened, leading to Gibson’s arrest. He was arrested on June 15, 2016, while pimping a second victim, a woman, in an Orange County motel room, the District Attorney’s Office said in a statement Thursday.
