Convery, who was a prosecutor on both the state and federal level, contended the only difference between his client facing a misdemeanor in a county court, instead of a felony at the federal level, is the circumstances surrounding the teenage girl.
Valas is charged in connection with three San Antonio residents who are accused of prostituting teenage girls in San Antonio. Charges also include the production of child pornography.
In March, Amber Doak, 20, of San Antonio pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in San Antonio for her part in prostituting a 15-year-old girl in August 2013, according to a news release issued at that time by U.S. Attorney Robert Pitman for the Western District of Texas and Acting FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron C. Rouse, San Antonio Division.
