Guilty plea avoids trial for man facing Nanaimo prostitution charge
Feb 19, 2021
NANAIMO — A scheduled preliminary inquiry shifted to a sudden guilty plea by a man admitting to a charge of advertising sexual services.
Seyed Kourosh Miralinaghi, 20, will be sentenced at a later date for the Feb. 24, 2019 incident in Nanaimo as opposed to potentially standing trial in BC Supreme Court.
Miralinaghi made headlines over a year ago near Swift Current, Saskatchewan in late January, 2020 when he and four others were arrested and charged with human trafficking offences involving two young women.
I'm sorry, am I getting my facts wrong or does Ian Holmes consider 15-year old girls young women?
"A Nanaimo man will spend close to two more years in a Saskatchewan jail after pleading guilty to procuring a 15-year-old girl for sexual purposes.
Four Vancouver Islanders — Seyed Kamran Miralinaghi, his twin brother Seyed Kourosh Miralinaghi, his mother Shermineh Sheri Ziaee and Shawn Alexander Kelly — were arrested by Swift Current RCMP on Jan. 27 and charged with trafficking two young girls."
