San Jose man who pleaded no contest to felony pimping a no-show at sentencing

A man who pleaded no contest to felony pimping charges in September on condition of three years in state prison did not show up for his sentencing Wednesday and a bench warrant was issued for his arrest, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney’s Office.

William Maurice Dillon, 33, of San Jose was arrested in November 2013 in South San Francisco after local detectives conducted a sting at the La Quinta Motel.

South City detectives found an ad on the now defunct myredbook.com that advertised sexual services, prosecutors said. The phone number on the ad was reportedly traced to Dillon.

The detectives arranged for an “$80 special” date at the hotel Nov. 1, 2013. When officers arrived, they found two adult women.

The women told police they were prostitutes and that Dillon was their pimp, prosecutors said. One woman also had Dillon’s cellphone.

Dillon was found nearby and had keys for the room where the women were found, prosecutors said.

He denied any involvement in prostitution.

On Sept. 23, the second day of his jury trial, Dillon changed his mind and pleaded no contest to felony pimping on the condition of three years in state prison.

He was out of custody after posting $50,000 bail but did not show up at his sentencing Wednesday.

A $100,000 bench warrant for his arrest was subsequently issued.
