Dojo Pizza Owner To Be Sentenced on Federal Child Sex Traffic Charges

December 27, 2019

South St. Louis Dojo Pizza owner will be sentenced on federal child sex traffic charges. Loren Copp was found guilty in 2018 of eight separate counts of sex crimes. Prosecutors say that several underage girls lived above the pizza shop located on Morganford in the Bevo Mill neighborhood. It is unclear if Copp had custody of the girls whose parents were either incarcerated or homeless. 

This sex trafficking case is an example of the seriousness of the issue in St. Louis. (Ret) FBI Agent Paul Fennewald talks about the dangers in this community and how to respond.
