The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office Human Trafficking Task Force announced the arrest Friday of a man who was busted for allegedly trafficking a minor.
Moise Junior Jasmin, 23, was arrested Friday, facing an array of felony charges, many related to the human trafficking of a minor.
The victim, according to the State Attorney’s Office, is only 15 years old and had been reported missing by her mother.
According to the arrest warrant, the victim had been living with Jasmin since she was 14. Prosecutors say they found cellphone videos of Jasmin having sex with the victim that Jasmin would upload to a pay-to-view website.

Jasmin is also accused of taking the victim to New York when she was just 13 years old with other men to allegedly sex traffick her.
NBC 6 went to the address listed for Jasmin on the arrest warrant, and a man who said he was Jasmin’s father said, “It’s not true. It’s not true.”
The father said he thought the girl was 19 years old.
“She said she was 19. She always tells me she was 19 years old," he said.
However, according to the warrant, the victim told investigators Jasmin told her to tell people she was 19.
“The very concept of a young teenage girl being sexually trafficked in our community is a parent’s worst nightmare,” said State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle. “A young girl’s innocence and childhood are quickly stripped away by an alleged trafficker’s desire for fast, easy cash. Rescuing these victims and removing traffickers from our community are, and will always be, the main goals of my Human Trafficking Task Force. These dedicated police officers and investigators deserve a community-wide thanks.”
