Pierce County prosecutors have charged a Tacoma man with posting on the Internet sexual photographs of two 13-year-old girls.
An arrest warrant was issued Thursday for Sabir Israel Shabazz, 20, according to court documents. Shabazz is charged with two counts of promoting commercial sexual abuse of a minor.
Prosecutors allege he is the boyfriend of Shadina Rice, who also was charged earlier this week with two counts of promoting commercial sexual abuse of a minor. Rice remained jailed today in lieu of $100,000 bail.
Authorities believe she pimped out two 13-year-old runaways who sought shelter with her.
New charging papers filed Thursday state Shabazz posted pictures of the girls wearing very little clothing and posing in sexual positions on the escort/prostitution page of a classified website.
