Gwinnett man sentenced for pimping teenage wife

A Gwinnett County man pleaded guilty Monday to pimping his 18-year-old wife.

Delorean Gibson, 29, was arrested in March during a human trafficking sting at a motel in Norcross. Undercover officers found a teenage woman in an online ad for sex and paid her $90 for 30 minutes of service, according to a news release sent Tuesday by the Gwinnett County Solicitor’s Office.

During the sting, the woman handed Gibson the money under the motel bathroom door, where he was hiding. Officials then arrested both Gibson and the teenager — who are now married, according to the release.

Gibson pleaded guilty to pimping and possession of marijuana, for which he was sentenced to six months in prison, 24 months on probation, and an alcohol and drug evaluation and a risk reduction class. He also must stay away from all Gwinnett hotels, motels and inns.
