PD: Sex trafficker with multi-city connections busted by Phoenix PD

Phoenix police arrested a multi-city sex trafficker after he reportedly offered employment and training to an undercover officer.

Police report that an undercover member of their Vice Enforcement Unit answered an advertisement placed by 34-year-old Raymond Demon Kemp, who also goes by "Duddy Gohard."

The female detective held numerous text conversations with Kemp who offered her a mentor, a car, and information on how to make the "big money" in prostitution.

He reportedly promised her a minimum of $500 per call and offered to take her to high dollar events in Miami, Las Vegas, New Orleans and New York.

Authorities searched Kemp's financial transactions and found nearly $30,000 in payments linked to prostitution and an enterprise employing four other women in various states.

Kemp was located and arrested by police near 59th and Glendale avenues on August 25.

He's been charged with pandering, money laundering, and conspiracy.
