San Rafael Street Crimes Unit Arrest Two for Human Trafficking in Novato

SAN RAFAEL – In a press release issued Sunday, December 7, the San Rafael Police Street Crimes Unit reported the arrest of two human trafficking suspects in Novato.

The Street Crimes Unit received information from the FBI that a possible female minor was being sexually exploited on an escort website. The unit arranged to meet the minor during a prostitution sting and had contacted her at a local motel.

It was discovered that the possible minor was actually a young adult, however she was treated as a victim of human trafficking. In the course of the investigation, officers discovered that the victim was being sexually exploited and trafficked by two suspects, one male and a female.

The Street Crimes Unit officers located the suspects driving on Redwood Boulevard in Novato and the followed them to the Days Inn located at 8141 Redwood Boulevard. The officers made a vehicle stop and contacted the suspects. During the stop officers located additional evidence that corroborated that the victim had been sexually exploited and trafficked as a prostitute.

The suspects were identified as Shawn Buckley, a 20-year-old Novato resident and Jazmin Moniq Khayami, a 21-year-old San Anselmo resident. Both suspects are facing charges of human trafficking and a violation(s) of probation. Buckley lists his occupation as a “manager” and Khayami lists her occupation as a “model.” According to her Facebook page, where she identifies herself as Jazmin Khayami-Buckley, she is a counselor for Novato City Parks and Recreation, and a child care provider for a day care business. Bail has been set for each suspect at $25,000.

The victim was referred for assisting services through an advocacy organization.

Shawn Buckley is well known to local law enforcement, but the human trafficking charge is a new one for him. He has been arrested at least 8 times since he turned 18 in 2012, according to available records. Most recently, on September 8, he was charged with burglary and possession of stolen property. In a May 2014 incident, he was accused of entering a Novato home with an accomplice, both wearing masks and armed with handguns. According to a KRON 4 News story, they assaulted the residents and demanded property. After they left, the victim called for help, and Buckley was found and arrested at 1:20 am. He was charged with robbery, burglary, assault with a firearm, and probation violations.

In the two years preceding that incident, Buckley was arrested multiple times for burglary, robbery, resisting arrest, attempted petty theft, and probation violations. He was arrested in Costco in February 2013 as a suspect in several December burglaries with Cody Joseph Lawson.

There are no records showing any prior arrests for Jazim Khayami.

      Shut up! Wether’s it’s ellaborated or not there isome truth to it. These people deserve to be locked up. Go get a real job instead of trying to hurt people trying to make an honest living. Human trafficking is a terrible offense and someone that Could do something like that shouldn’t he let out on the streets. 8 offense since he was 18 common, he was a bad seed and it no surprise he would do something so heinous.

    Really are you saying the media might have only reported half a story. Did the media get their truth from who, the police. The police have been in the news a lot lately. Wouldn’t be surprised if they build up charges, to make this young man seem like a monster. That way they look like they’re heroes. Great slight of hand trick. Good thing this can go to trial and if beyond a reasonable doubt he is guilty justice will prevail. Or we find out the cops are dirty , wouldn’t be the first time. Even more amusing will be the opinions of people that don’t have a clue about the real world, judging others.

    For almost nude photos of the shrek looking b**** check out this guy Franks flikr account. in the albums section there is a mess load of photos of “jazi fai” these people are scum and so are the people they choose to suround themselves with. Jaz is best friends with a girl named monica who also has a album in this Flick account “mo infinit” who is a known prostitute. She has been doing longer i believe and her pimps name is dylin who is from novato. I would give you her instagram and facebook but it got deleted as soon as her friend went down. Her pimps instagram is @flyhandsomeandintelligent. But not for long whwn this is out. CHECK IT OUT QUICK! Then you got the 3rd friend jennifer who is just a drug addict. No evidence has been found she is a prostitutes yet….

    I only really knew Buckley through a friend and him coming to my work, but he really didn’t seem that awful of a person. He was probably only doing what he felt like he had to to get by, he was very protective of his close friends and family. He is probably thinking he is doing great things for them. The kid is a bit messed up from all the shit he has gone through, I’m sure he wasn’t always the villain they are making him out to be now. Unfortunately I will agree with most people here, even after somewhat knowing the kid, he should be locked up. It will give him some time to pull his head out of his ass and realize you cant and shouldn’t do these types of things. Maybe he’ll realize what he has done and how it has effected others lives. Learn something about yourself, Shawnybo, stop being the villain everyone is making you be.

    The comments section is always a circus when lots of ignorant snot nosed brats are gathered all in one place showing just how f***ed up in the head they are. I’ve earned my street credit and survived it because it’s coupled with a strong sense of right and wrong. The police would be doing society a favor unloading a clip on you. But that’s really not what you should worry about. There are a lot of thugs inside prisons and out on the street with a strong sense of right and wrong who’ve got nothing to lose by wiping s***ty people off the face of the earth.

    I realized I didn’t clarify what I meant about people in prisons having a strong sense of right and wrong. I mean if they’re in prison, how is that possible right? Stealing a car is not the same as child molestation. Knocking over a liquor store is not the same as pimping. Getting caught selling weed is not the same as rape. Say we’re going to put your mama, your sister and your daughter out on the corner to the wrong person and you gonna get f***ed up. I’m not sayin they’re saints. But if you disclose that you’re in for beating the s*** out of your wife/gf/baby’s mama, one big, bad, tattooed mother***** who loves his woman is going to make you his bitch.

    What happened is: This was a can’t lose for the police. Human trafficking is the latest in the series of ‘let’s be known for fighting unpopular crimes’ like gay bashing, pedophilia, and domestic abuse.

    So they entice the woman to show up at the motel. There are only two ways it could go down.
    1) She is an underage victim and the cops become heroes
    2) She is an adult and gets charged with prostitution, which is the way it went down.

    Once they have her, first thing they do is start in with the “We don’t really want you, we want your pimp” and “It will go easier on you if you cooperate” BS. She rolls and gives them some names. I don’t know any of the people involved but in general I kind of believe people that are arrested for prostitution are not exactly reliable witnesses. Nothing to do with Shawn’s or Jazmin’s character or innocence. It is just hard to accept somebody who is trying to cut a deal testimony.
