United States Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced today that a federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment against Lavon Carter, Jr., 20, of Vallejo, and his mother Laverne Vaughn, 36, also of Vallejo, charging them with various crimes involving the sex trafficking of a minor.  Previously, a federal grand jury had returned an indictment charging Carter with one count of sex trafficking of children, and three counts of interstate transportation of a minor with the intent that the minor engage in prostitution.  The superseding indictment returned today, adds Vaughn as a co-defendant in the count charging Carter with the sex trafficking of children.
