, Mahender and Helen Singh, a married couple, were charged with child sex trafficking after officers discovered them at the on Airport Boulevard in August with three teenage girls who said they were being held by force as prostitutes, according to police.
In both cases, the suspects accused of pimping have allegedly advertised the girls on hookup website MyRedbook.com. .
Armstrong, a Stockton resident, didn't appear at his Tuesday court date and forfeited his $20,000 bail bond, according to Wagstaffe. The judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest and set bail at $50,000.
Prosecutors filed charges of pimping, pandering and human trafficking against Armstrong.
