SUMMARY:

Defendant was charged with the sex trafficking of four adult women. The women initially worked for defendant voluntarily as prostitutes, but defendant compelled their continued employment by beatings and threats. After recruiting, and then emotionally and physically abusing an eighteen-year-old victim, defendant coerced the victim into “grooming” other victims on how to behave as prostitutes for the defendant. The defendant placed ads in Craigslist and Seattle Weekly advertising the sexual availability of the victims.

Defendant was found guilty by a federal jury of trafficking and other related charges and sentenced to 312 months imprisonment. He was also ordered to pay $68,500 in victim restitution.
