Defendants recruited victims by telling them that prostitution would make them a lot of money, provide them a family environment and resources including meals, clothing, and cell telephones. Defendants forced the victims to engage in commercial sex acts through beatings and sexual assaults. Defendants were convicted of multiple trafficking-related charges.
