Stephen Stinson was found guilty on eight counts of child prostitution, sexual exploitation and pornography in December and was sentenced in January to 22 years in state prison.
An additional four years was added to Kasey Stinson's sentence because he lied under oath during his cousin's trial, Irvine said.
The two men rented a home on West Lomita Street in March 2004 and for three months ? until police uncovered the operation ? began prostituting girls as young 15 years old, Irvine said.
Glendale Police uncovered the ring by accident.
After receiving calls about a disturbance at the Lomita Street home, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Kuh arrived and heard a woman screaming and being slapped inside, Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said. Kuh entered to find a man, later identified as Kasey Stinson, beating a teenage girl. After separating the pair, Kuh came across another teenage girl.
"Out of a rear room comes this 15-year-old girl, and [Kuh] peeks into the bedroom to see what he thinks might be child pornography; he sees mirrors, Web cams and a huge sex toy on the floor," Lorenz said.
Kuh contacted the Police Department's sex crimes unit, and detectives arrived to learn that Kasey Stinson had been arrested two months earlier for pimping and beating a 15-year-old girl in Hollywood, Lorenz said.
